Bankstown City Council is preparing to induct an army of home grown Australian native plant experts starting this month.
Residents are being invited to learn how to propogate, plant and care for native plants at a series of free Go Native workshops.
Council’s call to arms is expected to draw residents from across the city to Bellevue Reserve and Landsdowne Reserve at Georges Hall, for a series of planting and propagation workshops commencing 15 September.
Mayor Khal Asfour said this is a great opportunity for residents to participate in fun community events.
It’s also a way to help green Bankstown and pick up valuable skills to beautify your own backyard gardens,” Mayor Asfour said.
“On top of that, residents will be helping to preserve the last remnants of Cumberland Plain woodland in Sydney.”
Family workshops will be held on weekends and during the school holidays so locals of all ages can join in.
