The Convenor of the Canberra Friends of Dili, Dr Steve Utick will be giving a talk at our next members’ meeting on 23 October about a proposed Permaculture School Garden Project at the Central School of Bidau-Akedierhan in Dili, Timor-Leste.
COGS celebrated its 40th Anniversary last year at an event held at the Crace Community Garden on Sunday 26th November was a great success with over 70 members and their friends in attendance. Minister Meegan Fitzharris attended with her husband Pierre and her two young children, and, in her speech, was very supportive of COGS.
In our 40th year and in our ongoing work, COGS recognises and celebrates the great vision of Betty Cornhill and her small group of like-minded gardeners who founded the Organic Farming and Gardening Society of the ACT which became incorporated as Canberra Organic Growers Society Inc. in 1985.
The next members’ meeting will be held on Tuesday, 23 October 2018 at 7:30pm. The venue is the usual meeting room at the Majura Community Centre, Rosevear Place, Dickson. There will be a talk by Dr Steve Utick from the Canberra Friends of Dili and our popular Q&A with our gardening gurus, Keith Colls and Paulene Cairduff.
The last COGS AGM was held on the 28th of March 2018. Our next AGM will be held in March 2019.
