Association of Societies for Growing Australian Plants (ASGAP)
The Association of Societies for Growing Australian Plants (ASGAP) caters for people interested in Australia's native flora whether that interest is simple appreciation of the beauty and diversity of the flora or whether it extends to propagation, cultivation and conservation. ASGAP is made up of seven independent, non-profit, Regional Societies........one in each of the six Australian States and the seventh being based in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The first Regional Society was established in 1957 in Victoria.
