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.
