BUILDING COMMUNITY & SOIL FERTILITY IN HOLDER – MEMBERS MEETING 26 MAY 2019 

At the last members’ meeting held in the COGS Holder Community Garden we followed the story of the garden since its establishment in 2001 shared by Lesley, an original member.  We heard about the challenges of the site, the impact of the 2003 bush fires and how the garden community has grown in strength and spirit over the years.

Holder gardener, Maarten, shared his knowledge of the techniques applied in organic agriculture to build soil carbon and soil fertility.  He emphasised the importance of maintaining green cover using green manures and effective  management of weeds for healthy soil biology – especially earthworms – and the production of humus.

Members Meeting 23 June: ‘Food Sharing in the Community’ – Open Forum

The next members’ meeting will be a talk from Canberra City Care on the challenge of food security for vulnerable people in Canberra and an open forum discussion on the what difference COGS members can make now and into the future to address these needs.   It will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Majura Community Centre, Dickson.  It should be stimulating and inspiring and help us formulate some positive action.
