Dorrigo Plateau, Dundurrabin, Billy's Creek

Dandarrga Landcare is a new Landcare group on the Dorrigo Plateau. We are

an enthusiastic group of people with skills in bush regeneration, propagation of

rainforest species, project management and community education.

We welcome new members interested in learning about
and improving our local natural biodiversity.

Our main goals are to:

• Encourage and assist local landowners and property managers with weed control and bush regeneration
• Catalogue and share information about local native rainforest species
• Provide access to local native seedlings and seed stock, by establishing a rainforest nursery
Our current projects include propagation and planting of local rainforest species, and privet control,
along the Blicks River, at Billy’s Creek, at Tyringham, and at the Dundurrabin Community Centre.

Dandarrga Native Nursery

Working Bees since September 2017 have refurbished an existing greenhouse and added composting bays.
The Dandarrga Native Nursery opened for business on 11th December 2017.
Opening hours are Mon, Wed, Fri and Saturday from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.
We have been operating on volunteer labour, donations, and borrowed tools, but we are hopeful of future financial support from grant funding, donations and tree sales. We are meeting many of the local people interested in native plants. We are delighted at the generous donations of local native seed, cuttings and seedlings. The shade house is filling up, and all the plant life is thriving.

Bellingen Shire Council have generously granted us some start up
funds from the Environmental Community Levy Fund to purchase
nursery equipment. We are very grateful! Much needed tubes,
trays and labels have been purchased and are being put to good
use growing up rainforest and other native species.
