Northern Suburbs Branch

Northern Suburbs Branch

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

SPECIAL EVENT: End of Season Plant Discounts: During Spring and Summer, the Northern Suburbs Nursery will have selected plants available at clearance prices on Thursdays and Saturdays. Call in to see what you can find for your garden – plants will need a little TLC in the hot weather and summer watering but will otherwise be OK to plant into your garden.

Events

Free guided nature walks each month, approximately one hour long, starting at 8:00am. See seasonal changes in plant and animal life in a number of Northern Suburbs bushlands.

The Northern Suburbs Branch meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month, starting at 7.30pm, at the Henderson Environmental Centre, Groat Street, North Beach.
