Community native plant nurseries

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. The nurseries are also open to the public to purchase plants to use on their properties.

Local native plants provide habitat for native wildlife. These plants are generally easy to maintain and require less water and care than many non-native plants. Local native plants have adapted to the local area’s climate and other environmental conditions.

Volunteers are essential to the success of both nurseries. Volunteers learn new skills and contribute to nursery operations. Volunteer duties include:

  • Seed collection
  • Seed cleaning and storage
  • Propagation by cuttings and seed sowing
  • Tubing and potting
  • Composting
  • Pest and disease inspections
  • Maintenance of the nursery grounds
