Native Plants for Residents 2024 – City of Armadale residents only

May 19 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

City of Armadale’s very popular plant giveaway program is back for 2024, with the beautiful Champion Centre serving as the community hub for pickup of your allocated plants.  You are invited to be part of learning, growing, and building natural habitat and wild gardens in your own yard, verge, or on the porch.  All plants are tubestock (generally no larger than a ruler length in height, and less than 12 months old).

This local government environmental initiative helps to establish and expand water wise/micro-climates with cooling native plant communities across the City.  These plants improve landscape quality and provide many benefits including increasing soil, air, and water quality. These seedlings provide food and shelter for insects, birds, reptiles, and small mammals.

The season of Djeran feels like mild days, cool nights and a reprieve from the hot weather, it really is the perfect time for outdoor nature activities like planting and growing new plants around your place. By registering for this event, you will be part of actions that improve our local environment across our City and restoring our greater environment.
