At our first meeting for 2017 we will have a produce swap night. Bring along your surplus produce, seeds and/or seedlings and see what you can swap them for.
In addition, Arian McVeigh from the Seed Savers Group located at Canberra City Farm will give us an overview of the work she is involved in.
Please bring along your ideas on speakers and special event nights you would like to have at our meetings during 2017. If you think there is a topic you wished to talk about then please let us know. If there is a particualr speaker you would like to hear or a special topic discussed then come along to the meeting and let the COGS Committee know. We need your ideas to make our meetings more productive, interesting and fun.
Don’t forget to return the COGS books you have borrowed and collect some new ones as the COGS Library will be open for business.
We look forward to seeing you there and please bring along a plate (which inlcudes produce from your garden) to share.
See you there.
