Old Government Cottage

Old Government Cottage

One of our community projects was the restoration of the garden at Old Government Cottage in Stanley Street, Bathurst.   The project started in early 2013 with Bathurst Gardeners’ Club constructing and researching an historical 1850’s style kitchen garden and plants of that era.  Bathurst District Historical Society provided the majority of the funds for the project.

The garden has several sections – picking garden, fruit trees, herb garden, vegetable garden and berries.

The garden was opened on the 29th of March 2015 and was a bi-centenary project.

The garden received an award at the Bathurst Bicentenary National Trust Heritage Awards for Outstanding Community Contribution to Local Heritage.

Official opening of the garden at Old Government Cottage on Sunday, 29th of March 2015.

There will be no meeting in January.   The first meeting for 2020 will be on Sunday the 2nd of February at 2pm.   The meeting will be held at Churches Garden Centre, 141 Seymour Street, Bathurst.  Please bring a hat, mug, chair and a small plate of afternoon tea to share.  We look forward to seeing you then.
