About Us

We are a friendly, diverse group of people who share a common interest in gardening organically, and working with nature rather than against it.

GOG was established in 1978, and has a long history of supporting gardeners in the Geelong and surrounds to share techniques, knowledge, plants and much more.

We meet every second month at the Geelong Botanic Gardens meeting rooms and in the month in between, we go on a field trip. At our meetings we often have a guest speakers, a library for members, a sales table and seed bank.

Six informative newsletters are sent out per year.
