Applications to open for Seedlings for Landcare

Published on Wednesday, 1 February 2023 at 10:48:33 AM

Schools, community groups and rural landowners within Shire of Mundaring are invited to register their interest for the Shire’s Seedlings for Landcare Program by 4pm on Friday 24 March.

A total of 24,000 seedlings including 57 different types of local native trees, shrubs, ground covers, herbs and rushes will be available to revegetate creeklines, provide habitat for wildlife and increase tree canopy across the shire.

Shire President James Martin said the program will assist the community to undertake environmental restoration.

“The seedlings will provide a boost for important local restoration projects that have long-term benefits for the environment,” he said.

In 2022, 20,000 seedlings were given to 257 rural-zoned residents and ratepayers, 30 Friends Groups, 11 schools and five community groups.

Expressions of interest will open on Friday 10 February giving eligible residents the opportunity to apply.

Sawyers Valley resident, Guy Lenoir, said he was grateful for the opportunity to be able to rehabilitate his property through participation in the program.

“This programme has enabled us to help the property recover from a dieback outbreak and the removal of invasive plants,” he said.

Mount Helena resident Bernard Kelly thanked the Shire for the initiative which he had been involved with for over 20 years.

“It has always been appreciated,” he said.

“I have taken advantage of the Shire plants on offer to complement the many other native species I plant each year to encourage wildlife and bird-life to our property.”


To be eligible to apply, applicants must be either:

  • A resident or ratepayer undertaking revegetation on a rural zoned property, or
  • A Catchment Group, Friends Group, school or other organisation undertaking revegetation on a nature reserve or school grounds within the shire.
