Free Verge Plant Program 2018
The Free Verge Plant Program is run in partnership between Landcare SJ, the Roadside Care Volunteers, and the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale.
To encourage all landholders in the Shire of SJ to apply for this FREE program Landcare SJ have streamlined the application process.
Applicants can apply four times and will be sent a voucher to cover the cost of their allocated seedlings. This voucher can be redeemed at any time at the Australian Native Nursery in Oakford BEFORE October 1st 2018. The staff at the nursery will help landowners choose native seedlings that will flourish in respect to soil type, the presence of power lines and weed burdens.
Small landholders will be able to apply for an amount of native seedlings to be used in their front gardens as well as their verge. This is too encourage all community members to plant native species and increase connectivity throughout the Shire of SJ for our native plants and animals.
The native seedlings provided for this program are valued at $5 ea with the cost covered by the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale. If you would like to increase the amount of seedlings you pick up additional plants can be purchased from the Australian Native Nursery.
Please fill in this online form and a Landcare SJ Officer will reply via email with a voucher for your seedlings and further instructions
