Drive for native plant fruits, seeds
FRUIT from native trees is being sought by Tablelands Regional Council as part of a program to revegetate native plant species in the region.
“We need help from the community with donations of native fruit and seeds,” Cr Dave Bilney (pictured) said.
“If you’ve got native trees that are dropping fruit, collect it and bring them to the Community Revegetation Nursery at Winfield Park.
“It doesn’t matter if no-one is there, leave them at the gate in a bag or container that you no longer need, and include a note about where and when the fruit was collected, and a branch with leaves so our staff can confirm identification.
“The seeds will be immediately propagated or stored for future use.
“It’s such a simple but powerful way to be a part of the future of our region’s natural environment.”
