The Capital City Organic Gardeners (CCOG) folded in October 2013.
The group was a vital part of the home gardening community for five really good years. During that time, the local food gardening movement blossomed in New Hampshire. Presently, Farmers Markets and CSA’s can now be found all over the state any day of the week. Winter markets have exploded and taken hold in many communities. The permaculture movement is gaining steam and groups are forming and supporting each other in all sorts of projects.
The group folded because the leaders in the organization were ready to move on to new projects and unfortunately, no one was willing to step into a new leadership positions. The good news is that the tiny niche CCOG served in Concord, NH is now able to find many more local resources to support their gardening practices.
For anyone who might be interested, our mission statement and basic format is outlined below…
