“GOING OUTSIDE THE FENCE”: COGS FOOD SHARING WITH THE COMMUNITY – MEMBERS MEETING 23 JUNE 2019 

The last members’ meeting held at Dickson was attended by a small group of COGS leaders and committed members.  We had a presentation from the Operations Manager of Canberra City Care on the problems of food insecurity experienced by vulnerable people and households in the Canberra community and the work of this organisation and other to held address this need with reliable access to affordable, healthy, sustainable and culturally appropriate food.  

The Cook, Charnwood and Crace community gardens have been donating fresh food to charitable organisations over the past couple of years.  However, COGS and its membership is being encouraged to do more “outside the fence” in supplying quality fresh fruit and vegetables for socially disadvantaged people given our 12 community gardens and 1.5 hectares under cultivation and our privileged position in the community.
