Welcome to the Nimmitabel & District Garden Club
ABOUT THE CLUB
The Club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017. During this time, the Club has been very successful in running a biannual Open Gardens programme, highlighting the many cold climate gardens of the greater Monaro district. From old farming properties, to smaller village gardens, these gardens have provided a wonderful oasis on the Monaro plains, whilst others are surrounding by the typical Australian bushland setting of towering eucalpt forests.
Monies raised have been used to support many local charities, and have been used to beautify the Nimmitabel village itself through the planting of avenues of trees in the approaches to the village and its surrounding streets.
The Club has a very active membership and we try to live up to the GCA’s motto of friendship through gardening. The Club has also produced a garden book, now in its third edition, fourth printing.
Normally, members meet monthly on the first Tuesday, except for January and November when we meet on the second, in the Nimmitabel Community Centre, but increasingly meetings take place in the gardens of members. Invited speakers share the hearth during the cold winter months. During the year, members raise plant cuttings etc to swap at one of the meetings … everyone may benefit from the trials and tribulations of growing plants in the many local micro-climates found throughout the Monaro region.
