Avon Organic Group (AOG) is the local group in Bristol, set up in 1984, for everyone who is interested in organic gardening and organic foods.

AOG holds regular meetings from September to May, with speakers on a wide range of subjects of interest to members. In summer there are group visits to organic gardens, allotments and other events.

AOG promotes organic growing (and the Group) at local festivals and events and sells produce grown by its members. Members may also sell their own produce at AOG meetings – with a share of proceeds going to the group.

AOG holds an annual seed swap (including heritage seeds), a plant sale and a group seed order for members, who receive substantial discounts on the purchase of seeds and other items from the Organic Gardening Catalogue.

AOG gives you the chance to meet, exchange ideas, learn or just enjoy the company of likeminded colleagues in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

AOG keeps members informed by email of our own and other forthcoming meetings and events. It aims to produce a newsletter three times a year, keeping members up-to-date, including information, articles, recipes, wanted/for sale items etc.

AOG members have the option of discounted membership of Horfield Organic Community Orchard, which began as an AOG project in 1998.
