Gerringong Bowling Club community garden flourishes

The Gerringong Bowling Club Community Garden is a group of keen local gardeners with a community mind. The group meets at the garden, at the rear of the Gerringong Bowling Club, each Tuesday at 9.30am and hold various working bees throughout the year.


Led by their dedicated President, Sue Daniels, the group has enjoyed nearly doubling the garden space in just six months. Adding several new raised garden beds, planting new fruit trees, adding a polytunnel and many other upgrades.

This morning Gareth Ward MP for Kiama visited the garden with high praise for the way the space has grown, offering encouragement and support. 


Several new members have lent a hand assembling new equipment for the garden. The Men’s Shed in Gerringong graciously took on the task of building the new garden beds with wooden planks that were donated to the group by Red River Wood in Kiama. The Bowling Club also lent a hand by donating the new polytunnels and two metal raised garden beds.

The group’s efforts are in full bloom, the gardens are producing beautiful fruits, vegetables and herbs with more in the works. The community garden stands as a testament to community collaboration and a shared passion. 


The garden is abuzz with many very happy bees, lady bugs, and their lovely mascot, Daisy the dog.

The group is always looking for new members who want to get involved, meet new people, learn new things and be a part of something in our community. You can find more information on their facebook page.
