Plant giveaway to help green Gosnells

Ross Wylie and Luke Church are ready to transform their gardens with the free native plant giveaway.

The City of Gosnells is giving away 10,000 native plants to residents in a bid to increase biodiversity and make the city greener.

Register from Monday 1 April for your free pack of 10 plants, which must be collected between 9am and 1pm on Sunday 14 April at the City of Gosnells Museum at Wilkinson Homestead.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said the giveaway was thanks to a partnership with Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group and was part-funded by the Water Corporation’s Greening Initiative.

“The City of Gosnells is committed to increasing tree canopy in our neighbourhoods, increasing shade, reducing carbon emissions and providing essential habitat for wildlife,” she said.

“Native plants are a great way to transform your garden, reduce water use and improve biodiversity in our community, one yard at a time.”

“Bring the family along when you collect your plants, because there will be some great gardening tips to share and activities for the kids.”

Registrations are essential and residents must bring photo ID and a recent Rates notice or utility bill as proof of residential address. Bring a box or container to carry the plants home in.
