National Tree Day plant swap

Sunday 31 July 2022

10am - 2pm

Where: Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden, Deep Creek Dam Road, Batemans Bay

Cost: Free - just bring along environmental weeds from your garden to exchange

Calling all green and brown thumbs!

Eurobodalla residents are invited to bring environmental weeds from home and swap them for free native plants at the market stall to celebrate National Tree Day. You can also ask questions about pesky plants in your garden, learn more about bush-friendly alternatives and water-wise gardens, and get great gardening tips and advice from our Environment Team.

Environmental weeds such as African Daisy and Asparagus Fern spread easily, are highly invasive and require resources for their removal that would be better spent elsewhere. Unfortunately, many weed outbreaks start unknowingly in people's backyards. Plant swaps are all about getting to the source of weed outbreaks before they have a chance to spread, and giving you a great alternative for your garden.

By exchanging weeds, you remove a seed source that would have spread into local bush or farm land, and you become part of the sustainable movement that protects and enhances local bush land.
