Working Bees – Caring for Bundanoon Town Gardens

The Bundanoon Garden Club began in 1970 as the Bundanoon Beautification and Garden Club.  The original 23 members wanted to beautify the village by creating public gardens and planting trees. Fifty years later, members of the club still meet every month to enjoy a friendly hour or two of light gardening and weeding and maintain some of the gardens in Bundanoon.  Join them at the Garden of Memories at 8am on the 3rd Thursday of every month. The club also cares of Nancy Kingsbury Park and the Memorial Gardens.
