The City of Greater Geraldton Community Nursery has relocated to 31 Adelaide Street, Waggrakine and invites the community to an open day to learn more about it on Friday, December 6 from 9.30am to noon.
Owned by the City, the nursery exists to provide the space to propagate seeds collected from local native plant species that have adapted to local soils and climate.
At the nursery they are grown into healthy seedlings that will be planted out in the winter months in natural areas that need restoration, areas like the Chapman River Wildlife Corridor, Greenough River, Ellendale Pool and various coastal sites from Cape Burney to Drummond Cove.
The nursery is operated by City staff with the assistance of many local volunteers who care about the environment.
The City encourages people to become volunteers and to attend one of the nursery’s ‘community supporting sustainability’ days.
Recently the community helped to clean up the Moresby Conservation Park in addition to seed collection and tree planting in the Chapman River Wildlife Corridor.
For further information on the open day or becoming a volunteer, contact the Sustainability Team at the City of Greater Geraldton on 08 9956 6600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
