B4C’s native plant nursery, run by volunteers, is located at our Sustainability Centre at Carindale. Here we propagate seedlings which support local bush care and rehabilitation projects and works.

Volunteers are able to gain new skills including:

  • Collecting seed (every few weeks only)
  • Sorting seed from pods
  • Plant propagation
  • Laying seed into trays for germination
  • Potting seedlings into individual pots when at sufficient height
  • Watering plants
  • De-leafing pots to maximise water potential
  • Weeding pots
  • Washing pots and trays
  • Fertilising plants
  • Blocking pots, removing dead plants
  • Working in the community vegetable gardens
  • Working in the bush tucker and rainforest gardens
