What could possibly be better than plants? Free plants of course! So keep reading to learn how you can get 2 free plants.
Brisbane City Council is all about working towards their #CleanandGreenBrisbane initiative and to do so they've introduced the Free Native Plants Program to help Brisbaners green-ify their properties. The program is offering a variety of native species to help grow the city’s urban forest and support local wildlife.
The program is open to the following residents and entities within Brisbane:
- residential ratepayers
- residential tenants
- residential body corporates
- registered community groups
- clubs on council-leased land
- official citizenship ceremonies.
You can claim 2 free native plants each financial year and choose from a variety of plants including groundcovers, tufting plants, climbers, shrubs and feature trees. The plants on offer also all suit Brisbane soils and our subtropical climate!
So how do you get your 2 free plants?
1. Visit a library (except mobile libraries), Council Regional Business Centre, or ward office and present a paid rates notice or written authority from the current financial year from the property owner or property manager. You will receive an approved stamped Free Native Plants voucher.
2. Visit a participating retail nursery and exchange your voucher for two free native plants. You can find one here.
1. Visit Council’s Downfall Creek Bushland Centre at Chermside West or Karawatha Forest Discovery Centre at Karawatha with your paid rates notice or written authority from the current financial year from the property owner or property manager.
2. Collect your 2 free native plants from the Council display stand.
