ROGI's gardening experts will share their knowledge and experience at the group's popular round robin evening on April 10 at Alexandra Hills.
Organisers said it was a great opportunity for people to learn more about their interests in organic gardening.
They could choose to attend three out of four 20-minute sessions on offer.
These included a beginner's guide to starting a vegetable patch, the joys of composting/worm farming, good and bad bugs in your garden and preserving a bumper garden harvest.
Jill Nixon, who will assist with the bugs session, encouraged new gardeners to join on the night.
She said there was a great support network within the group and new members could have a buddy who would be able to point them to various people who can help.
"You'll learn lots and get hooked," she said.
Jill describes her own Birkdale garden as a work in progress.
"I borrowed many books from the ROGI library for ideas and extra expertise," she said.
"And visiting other members' gardens is valuable for inspiration and local knowledge.
"I get asked lots of gardening questions.
"The footpath to the train station carries many pedestrians who often stop and chat, and sometimes come in for a walk around and bring back children to visit the chooks.
"Many comment on the positive aspects of growing food in the front yard.
"My best tip for new gardeners would be - don't be disheartened if something doesn't work, just try something else.
"Adjust your vision to the amount of time and effort you are willing to put in."
ROGI meets on April 10 at 7pm (6.15pm for organic shopping) at Salvation Army, corner of McDonald Road and MacArthur Street, Alexandra Hills. Entry is $5 and supper is served afterwards. See rogi.com.au
