Kimberley Community Garden

Kimberley’s Community 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 as this helps us in our efforts to secure ongoing funding.

New in 2019! You will see some updates taking place thanks to funding secured through the Kimberley Community Foundation and individual donations. This includes our new sign created with artwork from local student Kaila Buchy, and helpful signage that lets you know what is ready to harvest!
