Kimberley Community Garden

Welcome to the Kimberley Community Garden!

The Kimberley Community Garden is a demonstration garden designed to share the knowledge and skills needed to empower you to grow food in your own backyard.

The garden, which is located on Rotary Drive just South of the Aquatic Centre, 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.

There are no allotted plots and anyone is free to use the space. Please come by any time during the growing season, and remember to sign the logbook in the shed as this helps us in our efforts to secure ongoing funding.

Summer volunteer meet ups take place weekly on:

Wednesdays from  5 to 7 pm
Saturdays from 9 am to 12 pm
