Each year, Council grows and supplies around 100,000 indigenous plants, grasses and trees for planting in our parks, bushland reserves and foreshore. The nursery sells stock to the local golf courses and is open to all members of the public.

The nursery opened in 1978 with the aim to protect Bayside's biodiversity by growing plants from local seed stock. It helps to prevent local extinctions through raising awareness and appreciation of Bayside's indigenous flora in public and private landscapes.

Volunteer at the nursery

An outstanding team of nursery volunteers work tirelessly sowing seeds, striking cuttings, helping with sales and caring for developing stock. New volunteers are always welcome.

Volunteer Sessions: Thursdays 10am–12noon.
