Community Garden

 

Why buy vegetables transported from Queensland when you can grow them yourself in Berry?

Gateway Garden - A place where members of the community can come together to share gardening experiences, spend time with others with a similar interest and learn more about gardening while contributing to the community. Everyone is welcome.

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.

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
Many report findings tell us that good health is based on numerous factors, including self-esteem, feeling productive and valuable to society, having social relationships and being active.
The Berry Men's Shed and Gateway Garden provide a focus and setting for these activities. Everyone is welcome to join, men and women regardless of age or experience, Programs are also run for children. There is no membership fee. A gold coin donation for each day members attend is all that is asked.

REASONS FOR BEING

The Garden's 'Reasons for Being' are the same as for the Men’s Shed i.e. to:

  • Contribute to a better community ethos through community service while promoting the Christian values of tolerance, acceptance and inclusion.
  • Provide the opportunity for individuals of all ages and sex to meet in a friendly environment while engaging in useful, productive activities.
  • Develop members personal and practical skills and improve their self image, personal independence and well being.
