Welcome to the Hunter Organic Growers’ Society webpage.

Hunter Organic Growers’ Society Inc. (HOGS) started 30 years ago when organic growing was more unusual than it is now, and before permaculture had become as popular and well-known as it is now.

We are a group of people who grow food organically without artificial fertilisers, insecticides, herbicides and without polluting the environment. Organic growing is good for everyone.

We run a seed bank and a library for the benefit of members.

Our newsletter keeps members up to date with events. Copies are usually available free at field days.

Field days and our monthly newsletter encourage sustainable use of the earth in all aspects of daily life.

You don’t have to be a member to attend our Field Days. The cost to attend our Field Days for non-members is $4 or $6 a family.

You can find out more information regarding our Field Days on our Field Days page.
If you are interested in joining HOGS you can find it on our Join page.

If you would like to contact us you can email us at hunterorganicgrowerssociety@gmail.com.

We look forward to meeting and sharing with you!
