Welcome to the CSG
The CSG (formerly California State Grange) is not affiliated with the National Grange or the Grange of the State of California’s Patrons of Husbandry Chartered.
The CSG is the oldest agricultural organization in California, started in 1870.
Cities and townships have grown up around our rural halls and the CGS has evolved into a community service organization with 10,000 members and 206 chapters across California. CSG community halls are often the center of their community, providing opportunities, culture and education, entertainment, emergency shelter, and a meeting place where new friends are made and old friends are cherished.
Everyone is welcome to apply for membership in the CSG. Each member contributes at their own pace and level of participation. Each chapter decides how to best serve the community.
The benefits of membership are many;
- Personal fulfillment from making a difference in your community.
- Fun, family-friendly experiences where young and old alike share.
- Discounts on products and services.
- The comfort of knowing that as a CSG member, you are never alone.
The CSG supports and advocates for healthy communities, family farms, local economies, cultural diversity, public schools and education, the arts, and a variety of charitable causes.
The CSG has lobbyists in Sacramento and boasts a long history of successful legislative advocacy. Important issues discussed and decided at the community chapter level may become CSG policy, and even legislation.
The CSG is family-friendly and has special programs for juniors, youth, young adults and women.
The CSG was the first organization to support and promote women as equal voting members. The CSG is non-partisan and non-denominational.
