The Berry Gardens Festival is nearly here!

Following three years of drought, fire, floods and a pandemic, we are thrilled to welcome you back once again to the 2022 Berry Gardens Festival!

Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a novice, there’s sure to be something to delight, from native habitats, pretty cottage gardens and impressive acreages. And if you’re keen on growing your own food, we’ve got that covered too, with bountiful vegetable patches to explore.

George St Park, a labour of love of the Berry Garden Club since 2017, is also included in this year’s festival, and is the perfect picnic destination between garden visits.

Mark down October 13-16 in your diary, take a wander around some of Berry’s finest gardens, and help raise much needed funds for local charities.

Refreshments will be available, along with stalls selling garden-related ware. And of course, our legendary plant sale will be on for you to grab a bargain or three.

It’s going to be a beauty! See you there.

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.

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.

Apply to join the Club, or for more information about the Club and our activities, please contact Club Secretary, Debra Wooster on 0432 449364
