Whitehorse Plants for Schools Program

Whitehorse City Council provides funding for up to 100 indigenous plants per year for Primary & Secondary Schools, Early Learning Centres and Kindergartens in the Whitehorse municipality.

Plants are provided by our two Indigenous Community Nurseries - Bungalook and Greenlink. These nurseries are 100% volunteer-run and use local seed from Whitehorse and the surrounding areas. 

To get your free plants you can get in touch with the nursery closest to your school, early learning centre or kindergarten.

Gardens for Wildlife Visits

A Gardens for Wildlife visit prior to getting your free plants is recommended, but not essential. If you already know what you would like to plant you can get in contact with the Community Nurseries.

If you're not sure what to do then a Gardens for Wildlife visit would be helpful for you. At your visit two of our Garden Guides will visit your garden at an agreed time and discuss with you about habitat values and opportunities in the garden. After the visit the guides will prepare a written report that provides an assessment, suggests actions and offers advice.
