Community Garden

The Bridgewater Uniting Church has used state government’s Fund My Neighbourhood grant funding to build a community garden behind our Oak Community Centre.

Sophie Thomson at Bridgewater Community Garden. Recently Sophie gave a talk with great gardening advice about:

  • Soil that your plants will love
  • How to deal with garden pests organically
  • How to attract the beneficial insects

The garden is free for all members of the public to collect produce from.  The garden is open to the public.

The garden was officially opened on Saturday 24th November 2018, by Josh Teague MP, Member for Heysen. Photos of the opening ceremony are below.

The garden is maintained by a small volunteer group, and new volunteers are always very welcome.

For enquiries contact Mitchell Crisp on 0408 165 453 or

Please come along, enjoy the sunshine, and collect some delicious, fresh, organic produce to take home!
