The Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery and associated Bushcare Groups are reintroducing some of the diverse range of local provenance plants that once grew in the area.

Volunteers at the nurseries use locally sourced seed to propagate local native plant species. The plants are used at Bushcare sites across the Inner West, and in Council’s ecological restoration, parks and streetscapes projects. 

Local native plants are generally easy to maintain and require less water and care than many non-native plants. Local native plants have also adapted to the local area’s climate and other environmental conditions.

Becoming a nursery volunteer is a great way to learn new skills and contribute to providing habitat for native wildlife in the Inner West.

The nursery collects seeds and cuttings from nearby bushland and propagates this to produce tubestock.
