The Geographe Community Landcare Nursery held its annual volunteer thank you day to thank all its volunteers for their contribution.
Volunteers were treated to a barbecue lunch at Meelup Beach and were taken on botanical walks to learn more about the range of species from the nursery which are planted at the park.
On the way, volunteers also stopped at Point Picquet, Castle Rock and Marri Reserve where Ron Glencross from Dunsborough Coast and Landcare gave a talk on the reserve’s history.
Seed from the reserve is collected and propagated at the nursery.
The Geographe Community Landcare Nursery coordinator Rod Cary said the nursery provided volunteering opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
“No special knowledge is needed, everyone just helps each other,” he said.
The nursery produces more than 300 species of native plants from the region which are used for Landcare projects and residential gardens.
The centre has 80 volunteers whose tasks include propagation, plant maintenance, potting-on, as well as, seed collecting and processing.
The nursery is open every weekday except between Christmas and New Year, and sell native plants which are currently available for domestic gardens.
Plants from the nursery have been used in several projects including the Undalup Bush Food Garden, Nannup Friends of the Foreshore, Geocatch Rivercare, Vasse Diversion Drain, Old Broadwater Farm Development, Shepherd’s Way Walkway (Cloisters) and Peppies for Possums.
