PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL NORTHERN SUBURBS BRANCH ACTIVITIES ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. MONTHLY GUEST SPEAKER MEETINGS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED AND THE BRANCH PLANT NURSERY AT LANDSDALE FARM HAS BEEN CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. SATURDAY MORNING GUIDED WALKS HAVE ALSO BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL AT LEAST END-JUNE. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR INFORMATION ON THE RESUMPTION OF ACTIVITIES – HOPEFULLY IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE.

The Northern Suburbs Branch has meetings with guest speakers each month on the 4th Tuesday at 7.30pm at the Henderson Environment Centre, Groat St North Beach, and occasional excursions to places of interest. The largest activity of the Branch is propagating and selling local native plants at the nursery which is located at the Landsdale Farm. The nursery is open every week with special sales twice a year. A dedicated team of volunteers propagate the seedlings and also provide workshops and growing advice.

Nursery

The nursery is open every Thursday and Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Landsdale Farm is located on the corner of Evandale and Landsdale Roads, Darch. Volunteers will assist you to choose native species which are right for your location and growing conditions and will provide advice on soils, watering and other conditions needed to get the best from your native garden. For information on available plant species visit the nursery website: www.ns.wsowa.org.au
