We are passionate about the horticultural potential of Australian plants.
We are a knowledge focussed community promoting:
- the value and cultivation of Australian plants; and
- the conservation of Australian Native Plants and their habitats.
Native Plants Sunshine Coast is working to achieve:
- the planting of our native flora in local private and public gardens;
- the expansion of national parks and reserves to conserve local species and habitats;
- continued research and education about our local flora; and
- the diversification of commercial nurseries to provide garden stock of Australian species.
Activities conducted for these purposes include:
- regular meetings including exchange of information, guest speakers, assistance in identifying plant specimens and exchange of propagation material;
- excursions and garden visits to see Australian plants in their native habitat and in cultivation;
- participation in appropriate shows and exhibitions, conferences and workshops;
- undertaking projects and supporting study groups on plant groups of particular interest;
- liaison with like minded organisations; and
- developing a library of information and resources.
