All plants are tube stock or smaller. The program aims to promote the re-vegetation of residential and rural properties with local native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Planting not only improves landscape quality but also provides an array of environmental
benefits such as shade, carbon sequestration and shelter for birds, reptiles and small mammals.
Plant reservations will be opening in early May with plant pickup taking place in late May.
For 2022 the Plants for Residents program will operate under a ‘click and collect’ model.
Residents can view, select and order their plants (up to a maximum of 15) and select a time-slot for collection using the the booking system.
Last year’s event at the Woodlupine & Community Centre saw 50 different varieties of local native plant species totalling nearly 13,200 seedlings given to 996 residents.
One order per household only. First order received will be deemed the valid order.
