Plants for Locals

Please note: Due to a fantastic response from the community, the morning session is fully booked.

If any cancellations occur, packs will become available on Bookable. We are not operating a waitlist.

The City of Gosnells is offering residents up to 10 plants per household as part of our Plants for Locals program.

This program is aimed at residents who wish to add some colour and biodiversity to their gardens, reduce water use in the garden or attract native animals. All plants are native, with many being endemic to our region, and waterwise.

Plants will be available in pre-selected packs - each pack contains 10 plants that have been selected for their common qualities or ideal planting location. The packs types available are verge plants, groundcover plants, biodiverse plants, trees / shrubs and wildflowers. Each pack contains two of each plant.

Plants will be available for collection on Sunday 14 April at Wilkinson Homestead, Homestead Road, Gosnells. Residents will need to bring proof of residency (either photo ID such as a drivers license and a rates notice or utility bill).

Along with plant collection residents will be able to tour the museum (including the Flora in the Foothills exhibition), enjoy the gardens, enjoy a sausage from Darling Range Wildlife Shelter, visit the coffee and ice cream vans and learn more about the environmental initiatives taking place within the City.

Please read the FAQs available, or ask us a question for more information.
