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 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. Until then, make sure to visit Seedy Saturday taking place on March 9th from 12pm – 4pm at the Kimberley Public Library

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