OCCA’s Community Nursery is located at the Oxley Creek Catchment Centre, 9 Macdevitt Street, Coopers Plains. The nursery propagates local native seed to grow plants to enhance the bushland of the catchment.
As well as being available for Bushcare groups, the plants are for sale to the public at $1 – $2 per tubestock. Plants currently available include dianellas, lomandras, acacias, Broad-leaved paperbark (Melaleuca quinquenervia), and native violet (Viola hederacea).
Come and be involved!
The nursery is open to volunteers on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 to 3:30 pm and Friday mornings from 8:30 to 10:30 am.
Have fun learning basic nursery skills including seed collection, seed propagation, pricking out, potting on and care of native seedlings. No prior experience necessary.
