Due to popular demand, we have received a high level of plant requests in the first few days, the giveaway is currently closed. We will reopen if there is any additional plants to giveaway.

Background

Council would like to thank residents for all the valuable feedback provided on local environmental issues via the Have Your Say portal. As a show of thanks, a limited supply of free native plant packs is available. Each plant pack contains a mix of six native seedlings, which will be delivered right to your front door as part of a contact-free delivery service.

The native plants have been made available as part of Council’s annual plant giveaway program that sees thousands of seedlings distributed to residents and schools to help our community create habitat for local wildlife. Native plants are a good choice in gardens as they use less water than many non-natives and establish quickly. They are also great at attracting native animals and insects back into our area by providing shelter and food.

For this special giveaway event a selection of native trees, shrubs, grasses and groundcovers seedlings, grown from locally-collected seeds, will be available for home delivery. Simply pick the pack that best suits your gardening requirements.
