Welcome to the Canberra Organic Growers Society.
The Canberra Organic Growers Society (COGS)
is a non-profit organisation started in 1977 with the aim of providing a
forum for organic growers to exchange information and encourage society to
adopt organic growing methods.
COGS is part of the broader organic movement, which endeavours to provide an alternative to the mass of toxic chemicals, fertilisers, fungicides and herbicides used in modern agricultural methods by utilising more natural means of improving and preserving our soils and to produce nutritious, less contaminated food.
The alternative is to enrich the soil with compost, manure, green manure and mulches, so avoiding disease, and to control pests through non-chemical methods.
