We have an extensive seed bank of plants indigenous to our area (over 100 species). These include trees, understorey shrubs and grasses. These seeds are available to anyone interested in undertaking direct seeding or raising seedlings for later planting. We also have a tractor driven direct seeder which can be made available to landholders. We can advise on how, where and what in relation to direct seeding or tree planting generally. Refer to our Seed Bank Listing or Contact our office for further details.
We have associations with many external groups who provide support for our projects by way of partnering and providing financing. Details of these groups can be found from the links below.
