Membership cards are needed to collect plants from SOWN Nursery
The SOWN nursery has become a victim of its own success.
It is clear that a significant number of non-members have been taking advantage of our generosity and making no contribution to SOWN.
Free plants will only be made available to current SOWN financial members, who must present their membership card and member number to take plants or borrow equipment.
Membership cards can be collected from the nursery with proper identification.
Please return your wire trays
If you have any wire trays and you can return them to the SOWN nursery, please do so asap.
This is a recurring problem and failure to return these trays impedes our capacity to grow plants and to supply them to you.
Trays can be left at the nursery gate at any time, they will be cleared by nursery volunteers throughout the week. Please help us to help you. We could buy more trays by implementing a deposit scheme, but this would be an unnecessary inconvenience to you and the nursery volunteers.
Saturday morning nursery volunteers are needed!
We need more volunteers to help staff the SOWN Plant Nursery on a Saturday morning. It's only for two hours every couple of months and it's a seriously great place to hang out amongst the plants.
SOWN is a community organisation working to restore the habitats of creeks and waterways in the catchments of Enoggera, Ithaca and Fish Creeks in Brisbane's north west.
The SOWN nursery provides plants free to members. Nursery opening hours are as follows:
Saturdays 9.00 am to 11.00 am; and
Wednesdays 9.00 am to 12.30 pm.
These planting guides will help you choose the best local native plants for your regeneration site or garden. You can also visit the "Plants To Plant" section using the site navigation.

SOWN has volunteer catchment groups working on creek restoration throughout the Enoggera catchment including along Enoggera Creek, Fish Creek and Ithaca Creek. Look here to find the group nearest to you.
