Native plants are a good choice in gardens as they use less water than many non-natives and establish quickly. They are also great at attracting
native animals and
insects back into our area by providing shelter and food.
Every year, Council offers free native plant seedlings to residents and schools to help our community create habitat.
Plant giveaways are promoted in local newspapers, through Council's social media channels and on
cb.city/whatson. For library opening hours, please visit the
Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre page.
