Kimberley Open Gate Garden

Kimberley’s Open Gate Garden is an edible community garden based on sharing knowledge, ideas, tasks and food. There are no allotted plots and anyone is free to use the space.

The garden, which is located on Rotary Drive just South of the Aquatic Centre in Kimberley, was developed in 2014 when the ground was broken and fencing installed. You will find all the necessary tools in the open shed, along with a gazebo, composting units, and our famous re-purposed freezer beds.

The garden is for everyone!  When you visit the garden, please sign the logbook in the shed when you visit, as this helps us in our efforts to secure ongoing funding.

Dirk de Geus, the Food Sustainaiblity Coordinator is always open to suggestions, ideas, and queries about how you can get involved. Please feel free to contact dirk@wildsight.ca. Keep in the loop by signing up for Dirk’s Open Gate Garden Newsletter by emailing Dirk. In this newsletter you will be the first to know about activities, work bees and tasks at the garden.

Our sister garden is run by the Cranbrook Food Action Committee and can be followed HERE.
