members and the local community how to propagate local plants and
inter-state natives that grow well in Sydney gardens. We also run a
larger nursery at Lucas Heights Resource Recovery Park where we

schools and other community groups or worthy projects.
We maintain a native garden at the Illawong Rural Fire Station which showcases the variety and beauty of Australian plants.
other activities include stalls at local community events where we sell plants & cut flowers, and we are involved with National Tree

We also arrange a few bush walks in the
local area which is a great way to learn about your local plants.
