2021 CGA AGM

Come and join us for our AGM which will be followed by a Q&A session (or Costa-sation!) with Costa Georgiadis exclusively for our members!

Costa will be chatting about all things community gardening so come armed with your most burning questions if you need advice or feel free to share and discuss some of your wins or greatest learnings for 2021 with the rest of the group.

We look forward to having all our valuable members join us on the 24th!

…Naomi Lacey, CGA President
