Council is taking this immediate action to protect community, staff and essential services.

Inner West Council manages two community native plant nurseries:

Volunteers at the nurseries use locally sourced seed to propagate local native plant species. The plants are used at Bushcare sites across the Inner West, and in Council’s ecological restoration, parks and streetscapes projects. 

Local native plants are generally easy to maintain and require less water and care than many non-native plants. Local native plants have also 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.
