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.

By joining FOSGA you will tap into a community that is passionate about producing healthy food, enhancing our environment by promoting biodiversity, and increasing resilience through knowledge. Becoming a FOSGA is about respecting the fundamental importance of nature by protecting our wildlife and enhancing our communities through our gardens and open spaces.

As a not-for-profit, volunteer-led organisation SGA proudly offers FOSGA membership for just $45 annually – less than the cost of one cup of coffee a month!. The foundation of this affordable membership lies in a robust and active community. Your membership directly contributes to our ability to continuously inspire and empower our community.
