Plant swaps

Residents are invited to our plant swap stalls at markets and other events to swap environmental weeds from home for free native plants.

Environmental weeds such as African Daisy and Asparagus Fern spread easily, are highly invasive and require resources for their removal that would be better spent elsewhere. Unfortunately, many weed outbreaks start unknowingly in people's backyards.

Plant swaps are all about getting to the source of weed outbreaks before they have a chance to spread, and giving you a great alternative for your garden.

By exchanging weeds, you remove a seed source that would have spread into local bush or farm land, and you become part of the sustainable movement that protects and enhances local bush land.

Get involved

We'll list any upcoming plant swaps and garden activities on this page.

To take part, simply remove environmental weeds from your garden, put them in a bag, and bring them to the Eurobodalla Council plant swap. You will be given up to four native plants (depending on volume of weeds surrendered) in exchange.

Eurobodalla residents can also book a free water-wise or bush-friendly garden visit with staff at the plant swap stall. This involves a home visit from our natural resources staff to check out your garden and give advice about how to it bush-friendly, and give you some more free native plants.
