Community Planting

Council is working with community groups and residents to improve our environment by planting more native trees and shrubs. We already have thousands of trees and shrubs planted by community groups in our city's parks.

Getting involved

We welcome all groups whether they are large or small, young or old, experienced or inexperienced including:

  • schools
  • service clubs
  • ethnic groups
  • church groups
  • community houses
  • family members
  • sports clubs
  • environmental and resident groups.

Register your interest now through our Online Registration Form.


Planting is on public land which may include gullies, park boundaries, native bush restoration sites, undeveloped reserves, river banks or your neighbourhood area.

It involves removing undesirable vegetation, planting of native trees and shrubs, after care of plants or as much as your group wants to be involved with.

Council helps with the provision of plants and materials, technical support and publicity.

Achieving Together

With your help we can beautify our city by:

  • Revegetating our city to encourage native bird life, and increase its biodiversity for future generations to respect and enjoy
  • Learning about our native plants and ecology
  • Having a fun day out
