Plant swaps and activities

Residents are invited to plant swaps to exchange environmental weeds from home for free native plants, and to other fun nature-based activities held throughout the year, such as worm farming and home composting workshops.

Eurobodalla residents can also book a free water-wise or bush-friendly garden visit, which involves a home visit from our natural resources staff to check out your garden and give advice about how to make it bush-friendly - and give you some more free native plants!

Why plant swaps?

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.

By exchanging weeds for native plants, you remove a seed source that could have spread into local bush or farm land, getting to the source of weed outbreaks before they have a chance to start.
