Annual General Meeting 2020
POSTPONED

We had scheduled our Annual General Meeting for next week – Tuesday 31st March. However, the Executive Committee of the Canberra Organic Growers Society Inc. has decided to postpone the 2020 Annual General Meeting of the Society until further notice. This decision has been made in the light of the most recent advice from the Commonwealth Government and ACT Health department regarding the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus in particular for older people. Many other community based organisations are making similar decisions. The relevant ACT government department has also been notified of the decision.

Charnwood Community Garden Open Day

The Charnwood Community Garden is situated off Sports Way off Lhotsky Street in Charnwood, ACT. The garden held an open day on Sunday 15 March 2020 to raise community awareness of the benefits of growing vegetables and fruit organically, and to raise a little money for the garden. We had many stalls: BBQ, curry and roti, morning and afternoon tea, Canberra Seed Savers and a lucky dip for children. There was also a produce stall selling jams, chutneys, comfrey cream, plants, seeds, seedlings, cakes, biscuits, and fruit and vegetables harvested on the day. The latter being most popular. Our garden made $1270.
