Native Seedling Giveaway

Throughout the year Council runs a number of free native seedling giveaways to encourage native plantings and increase habitat for local fauna.

Seedling giveaway events are held throughout the year and Maitland residential property owners and households are encouraged to attend. Upon proof of residence at events, you can receive up to four native tube stock species to take away and plant in your garden. Tenants are required to seek landowner approval prior to attending the event.

For the next plant giveaway event visit the What's on page.

Rural property owners are able to contact Council at any time to request native seedlings. When property owners contact Council an assessment will be made of the property in consultation with the property owner and a plan and agreement developed to determine the species and number suitable for your particular rural property. Council will deliver the seedlings to individual properties once they are available.
