If you’d like to join COGS we have a full (1 or 2 adults with children) and concession (pension card, health care card and full-time students) membership available. Please see below for pricing and our membership form.
Full membership includes 1 or 2 adults and their children who are under 18 years of age. The membership entitles the people on the membership to such benefits as may be decided upon by the COGS committee from time to time and include:
Concession membership is available for pension card holders, health care card holders and full-time students. Where the membership includes two adults, both adults must be eligible for the concession and evidence must be provided for both. To apply for concessional membership, please send the membership secretary a photocopy of the relevant cards or documents.
Memberships are for one year and start in August. Current members renew their membership each August for the one year and pay the annual fee. The table below shows the the annual fee amounts.
In addition to membership fees, members who take a plot in a COGS garden pay plot fees to cover water usage and other garden expenses. The fee for 2019/2020 is $3.45 per square metre per year. The COGS Committee review the fee each year.
