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.
The next meeting of Bathurst Gardeners’ Club will be on Sunday the 4th of April, 2pm at 205 William Street, Bathurst. Two access points: one off William Street and flat access from Rocket Street via the Driveway. May meeting is on Sunday the 2nd of May at 27 Logan Street, Eglinton.
