Come along and enjoy a day with our team at the local native plant nursery propagating local native plants for the restoration of local habitats. When we revegetate these local habitats, it is important to use local plants which survive and thrive in the region. Our time at the nursery will include activities which range from germinating seeds, to planting seedlings in pots, to weeding the growing trees, to general nursery maintenance. All the while you will be learning more about horticulture and the local environment.
Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent.
