MEMBERS: time to plant!

The MCCG nursery started from humble beginnings in 1999 under our first co-ordinator Michael Reif. It is now a substantial operation, giving away between 12,000 and 15,000 plants to members every year.

Plants are free of charge to members of the Moggill Creek and Pullen Pullen Catchments Groups, with the exception of the endangered Birdwing Butterfly Vine (Pararistolochia praevenosa).  We have good stocks of advanced plants available for $8.

Please phone Bryan Hacker on 3374 1468 or via email at [email protected]  if you would like some free plants from our Nursery.
