COGS has started discussions with ACT Greens

In January 2017 COGS and the ACT Greens started discussing a number of significant and forward-looking initiatives, including:

  • an expansion of community gardening facilities
  • cultivation of roadside verges
  • development of a regional food economy and a Canberra brand

The potential contributions to urban horticulture and urban agriculture in the ACT are great and exciting.

QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION

COGS MEMBERS’ MEETING 24 OCTOBER 2017 7.30PM

Do you have a question on garden pests, plant diseases, plant identification, composting, weeds or any other gardening issues? If so, then come along to the COGS Member’s Meeting on 24 October. COGS Gardening Gurus Paulene Cairnduff and Keith Colls will be available to answer any of your gardening queries. Both of them feature on 2CC’s Garden Gurus.

Paulene is a qualified horticulturalist who loves gardening and has a home garden and a plot at Holder Community Garden.

Keith who was COGS President for many year and is now a member of the COGS Committee is also a qualified horticulturist. He was instrumental in setting up Canberra City Farm. Raised on a wheat and cattle farm in Queensland he has a strong connection to the land and is particularly interested in ways cities’ food supplies may be produced from within their own boundaries and adjacent regions. He also has a vast knowledge of gardening and plants.

It should be an interesting night so please come along and bring your friends if you wish. Also don’t forget to bring along your questions for our Gardening Gurus.

The COGS Library will also be open for business so, if you are a member, you can borrow a book and if you have any overdue books you can return them.

We will share a tea or coffee at the end of the Session so please bring along a plate to share.
