Berry Gardens Festival Goes Online

Join us in viewing eight beautiful gardens in and around Berry with host Jason Hodges.

For over 30 years our club has organised the Berry Gardens Festival showcasing some of the very best town cottage gardens and acreage properties across the Berry region’s escarpment and plains.

The pandemic has meant that we have not been able to hold a Festival for 2 years.

This year we have produced a stunning virtual Berry Gardens Festival featuring this years beautiful gardens, to whet your appetite and raise funds. Hosted by beloved landscaper and Berry local, Jason Hodges, this online Festival will give you behind the scenes look at selected gardens. The footage will give you access to locations that may never be shown to the public again.

Donations can be made online see below:

Berry & District Garden Club

The town of Berry is a place of great natural beauty nestling between coastal beaches and the soaring escarpment of the Cambewarra Ranges. Built on volcanic and clay soils, the sizzling heat of summer and crisp cool winters create an environment that is rich and varied in its flora and fauna – and a place where gardens grow with exuberance.

Berry will always be the perfect location for gardening enthusiasts and garden lovers.

The Berry & District Garden Club normally meets regularly to create the opportunity for members and visitors to exchange ideas, keep informed about all things gardening and meet up with like-minded people in the easy-going atmosphere of the monthly meetings. We hold our meetings on the third Tuesday of the month at St Lukes Church Hall, Princess Street, Berry.

Our Club is registered with Services NSW and has a QR code for use at all of our events. Now we are registered, the club has to comply with COVID-19 safe rules, including masks when required, hand sanitising and distancing.

For those new to the district, it’s a great way to become part of the Berry community; for the locals, the meetings are a time to catch up with friends, swap a few stories and welcome newcomers with Berry-style hospitality.

The Club holds two highlight events each year; the Camellia & Floral Show in August and the Berry Gardens Festival in October.

Garden Club members also enjoy keeping Berry beautiful.  Through the hard work of the Plant Propagation group funds are raised for projects around the town. Due to the current social restrictions  most regular working bees have been stopped however Club members have in the past worked at Berry Courthouse, maintain  George Street Park and as required, at the School of Arts prior to the Camellia and Floral Show, the RSL Memorial prior to Anzac Day, and in Apex Park – prior to the Gardens Festival. These generous Garden Club members, under the friendly guidance of a co-ordinating fellow gardener, prune, weed, dig and mulch the gardens that give pleasure to all who pass by. We are always happy to have extra helpers to join us for about an hour or so every month.
