Friends of Sustainable Gardening Australia (FOSGA) Gift Membership is the perfect zero waste gift for those in your life that are enthusiastic about protecting the natural world and enabling local healthy food production.

What does it mean to be a FOSGA?

FOSGA stands for Friends of Sustainable Gardening Australia and is SGA’s much loved and valued membership program.

As a FOSGA, your recipient will tap into a community that is passionate about producing healthy food, encouraging biodiversity and increasing resilience through knowledge. They will:

Gain access to the best evidence-based and independent advice on how to garden sustainably

Learn all about enabling their own healthy food production

Be empowered to enhance our environment by promoting biodiversity

FOSGAs receive the best independent and evidence-based advice from SGA with plenty of ongoing ideas and inspiration, including:

  • SGA’s Four Part Sustainable Gardening 101 Video Series all about mastering the fundamentals of sustainable gardening. Sessions include:
    • Composting & Worm Farming
    • Soil Farming
    • Low Impact Pest Management
    • Water Smart Gardening
  • 15% discounts on Master Classes
  • Members Only articles
  • Discounts and special offers from SGA accredited partners
  • Quarterly FOSGA newsletter Flourish
  • Invitations to special events.

As a not-for-profit, volunteer-led organisation SGA can offer our FOSGA membership at just $30 a year – less than 60 cents a week. The key to being able to maintain such a great value membership is a strong membership base! When people like you pass on the gift of a FOSGA Membership it means we can continue to inspire and empower our community.

By purchasing a FOSGA Gift Membership, you will help:

  • Constantly improve and add value to the FOSGA program to spread the word about sustainability across Australia
  • Continue to add to our online collection of research-based articles
  • Build sustainable communities through workshops and master classes
  • Share free educational newsletters and social media content that is independent and evidence-based, and
  • Maintain and further develop SGA’s web app WiseGardening – Choices to Protect You and the Planet to help users understand the environmental and human safety impacts of different approaches to controlling garden pests, disease and weeds.

Becoming a FOSGA is about respecting the fundamental importance of nature by encouraging biodiversity, protecting our wildlife and enhancing our communities through our gardens and open spaces.

SGA’s activities help you and others be kinder to our environment and gain important knowledge to increase our resilience by growing local healthy food, building community and protecting our environment.

Give the gift that keeps on giving!
