SEQ Community Nursery Network


Community nurseries are native plant nurseries that are staffed wholly or largely by volunteers. While some receive public funding support, others operate as social enterprises; selling plants and returning all profits to conserving natural habitats. 

Most of the plants are grown onsite from seed or cuttings obtained from the surrounding region or elsewhere in Queensland; the majority of nurseries specialise in growing plant species which occur in their local area. This means they can play a big part in conserving the natural plants where they work. The plants are used extensively in bush rehabilitation and regeneration projects, both by the public and by local community catchment groups.

In most cases community nurseries are open to the public, but a few are restricted to members of the community catchment group that runs the nursery.   
 
During May 2015 a group of energetic representatives of 12 community nurseries from across the SEQ region initiated a resolution to share knowledge, techniques and methods relevant to community nurseries.

Brisbane Catchments Network supports the SEQ Community Nursery Network, recognising that to be most relevant the network will be open to all community nurseries in Queensland, not just those based in Brisbane. We'll be working closely with SEQ Catchments to build the Network over the coming months. 


If you missed the day and would like to hear more about the network or join up, please contact the Brisbane Catchments Network secretary on secretary@brisbanecatchments.org.au. The database of community nurseries below was developed in partnership with Native Plants Queensland


The SEQ Community Nursery Network was established in partnership with SEQ Catchments under funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Programme. For more information visit www.nrm.gov.au/national-landcare-programme.
