The City's annual Plants for Residents program provides free plants to residents to support the establishment of natural habitat in backyards and verges across the City and improve our urban canopy. All plants need to be preordered online prior to collection.
When: Saturday, 29 May 2021 from 8am - 1pm
Venue: Woodlupine Family and Community Centre, 88 Hale Road, Forrestfield.
ORDERING OF PLANTS WILL BE ONLINE AND REGISTRATIONS OPEN TUESDAY, 4TH MAY 2021 AT 12NOON. *** SOLD OUT - BOOKINGS NOW CLOSED*** THERE WILL BE NO WALK-INS PERMITTED ON COLLECTION DAY.
Each eligible ratepayer will receive a total of 15 plants each for their property, however plants will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately City staff cannot hold or deliver plants.
Whether you are looking to replace those water hungry plants in your yard, want to attract more birds to your garden or have removed a weedy creeper from your fence and want a slow growing native to replace it, come and choose from a selection of hardy, local native plants! Residents can collect 15 x plants per rateable property, and will also be able to ask our knowledgeable staff questions about how and where to plant their selected plants.
Residents will need to bring their booking confirmation, photo ID or equivalent (proof of address required) and a container to put your pre-ordered plants into. Residents are encouraged to arrive at their selected hour timeslot at the time of pre-ordering to assist with traffic management and event flow.
