Douglas Shire Council supports all landcare groups, community groups, schools and individual landowners that are engaging in genuine revegetation projects.
In terms of Council responsibilities, our Open Spaces crew maintains one native plant nursery on Alchera Drive, Mossman, that supplies local tree planting groups as well as Council tree planting and revegetation/restoration activities such as, Reef Rescue projects, River Improvement Trust projects and Tropical Tree Day.
Council does not retail to the general public but all residents are entitled to two native plants from the nursery each year to encourage healthy tropical gardens. You can pick up your native plants from the nursery during 9am-3pm weekdays.
If the gate is locked our nursery team is probably out in the community planting somewhere and you will need to come back another time.
