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. 


The nursery is open every Thursday and Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Landsdale Farm is located on the corner of Evandale Rd and Hepburn Ave, 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.
