The Christmas Bush Garden Club has been running in Nelson Bay for over 35 years.

Yvonne Hill, head of the enthusiastic gardening group told News Of The Area, “Port Stephens Community Arts Centre will be opening their gardens to the public on Sunday 8 October.”

She believes that this will be a great day for families too, as children can explore the fairy garden.

“As part of National Gardening week, our garden club which is included in the 45,000 National Garden club members is holding an open day to provide the public with an opportunity to discover the tranquillity of our magnificent garden,” she said.

The Christmas Bush Club has been looking after a section of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre and on the approach to Nelson Bay Road.

It is a part of their charter that members help with community gardens.

The gardeners are hoping that by visiting the garden it will inspire visitors to enjoy the pleasure you get from working and walking through a garden.

The Arts Centre’s secret fairy also looks forward to receiving letters from visitors, which can be handed in at the desk in the main gallery.

While at the garden visitors are encouraged to ask questions of the experienced gardeners who will be there, as well as consider supporting the centre through purchases at the plant sale and cake stall, and cafe.
