Community native plant nurseries

Inner West Council manages two community native plant nurseries: 

Staff and volunteers use locally sourced seed to propagate local native plant species. The plants are used at natural areas in Council parks and reserves across the Inner West. The plants provide habitat for native wildlife including a number of threatened species that call the Inner West home.

Local native plants are generally easy to maintain and require less water and care than many non-native plants. This is because local native plants have adapted to the local area’s climate and other environmental conditions.

Becoming a nursery volunteer is a great way to learn new skills and contribute to providing habitat for native wildlife in the Inner West. Read the Nurseries Volunteer Duty Statement.

Council’s nursery volunteer program is currently at capacity. If you would like to be added to the list to be contacted when new volunteering opportunities become available please click on the link below:
