Local Landcare: Community nursery weed swap program

Swap a weed for a native - for FREE!

Port Macquarie Landcare Group has established a community nursery where the volunteers propagate healthy native plants indigenous to the area. These plants are all of local provenance and are grown from seed collected in the Port Macquarie-Hastings council area. These plants are used on Port Macquarie Hastings local government urban restoration sites and revegetation on private and public land.  Community members are invited to come along and purchase these plants, increasing native flora in our gardens and reducing the introduction of weeds.  Prices are kept to a minimum thus adding value to grant money for environmental restoration.

Weeds - How can you help?

Escaped plants from domestic gardens are invading Port Macquarie’s urban bushland impacting our native flora and fauna.  Residents are invited to bring in a ‘before and after’ removal photo of a weed from your garden to the nursery and Port Macquarie Community Landcare group will swap it with a suitable Australian native for you to take home and plant.
