Gateway Garden is a community garden located at 141 Woodhill
Mountain Road Berry. It is open to
all members of the community.
The community garden is a space where men, women and children
can come together to spend time with others with similar interests
and share ideas and knowledge.
Community gardening encourages healthy living through socialization
and working outdoors. In addition, growing healthy, chemical
free produce will address vital health issues facing our younger
and older generations as highlighted by health professionals
such as Dr Rosemary Stanton.
The garden has been designed with best-practice procedures
and will encourage the use of a number of agricultural disciplines,
including permaculture, organic growing and traditional farming
and gardening techniques as brought to us by Garden members
and industry guest speakers.
