Acquiring Plants from our Nurseries - Plant Request Process

Needing plants for your autumn revegetation project? Yass Area Landcare Group (YAN) Nurseries are excited to offer over 40 carefully selected species of plants that align with our commitment to produce plants that are suitable not just for our local climate now but in the future. Our dedicated volunteers grow these plants in our nurseries, ensuring they are well-suited for the local climate and ecology. To make the plant acquisition process seamless for landholders like you, we have outline the key steps:

  1. Plant Requesting: Select the species or landscape mix you desire for your revegetation project using our easy plant requesting form.
  2. Plant Collection: Once your plant request is confirmed, mark the dates for plant collection to ensure you receive your chosen plants at the right time for planting.
  3. Returning Tubes, Frames, and Boxes: Help us maintain our sustainable practices and keep costs low by returning the used tubes, frames, and boxes to your local nursery.
  4. Monitoring Your Planting: Stay engaged in the growth of your revegetation project by monitoring the progress of your plants and contribute information to help refine future species selection for you and others in the community.

For additional details and assistance, feel free to reach out to your local nursery team. Together, let's contribute to a vibrant, biodiverse and more resilient landscape!
