As part of the City of Rockingham’s commitment to building water sensitive communities and to support the establishment of backyard habitat for wildlife, the City will be giving away free native plants at Carramar Coastal Nursery from Saturday 4 May – Sunday 12 May 2019.
Residents will be able to collect up to 10 free seedlings per household from the nursery, which is located in Port Kennedy.
Mayor Barry Sammels said the native plants giveaway would be bigger than ever this year.
“Given the success of the program in 2018, the number of plants available in this year’s giveaway has almost tripled,” Mayor Sammels said.
“During the giveaway plants will be handed out on a first come first served basis, so I urge people to get in quick to avoid disappointment. All residents need to take part is proof of address, such as a driver’s licence, to verify that they live within the City of Rockingham.
“By taking part in the native plants giveaway residents will not only be boosting their own gardens, but also the City’s green canopy.”
Carramar Coastal Nursery is located at 1834 Mandurah Road in Port Kennedy and is open from 7.30am–4.30pm.
