CHECK OUT THIS LIST OF NATIVES WE'RE PLANTING ON OUR DUNES
Looking for some tips on which natives to plant in your coastal garden?
A good starting point might be to see what our PBCA bushcare coordinator - Rochelle Gooch - has found to replant around Beach Access 59 ... that's the Southern end of the Village foreshore Park where our new Story Tree sculpture will soon take shape.
Wet weather over the past few weeks has been kind to the young natives that have been planted in the eroded dunes as part of this community project.
PCBA Bushcare sourced this selection of salt tolerant trees and creepers from the excellent Coolum Community Native Nursery.
The nursery is a great place to buy inexpensive locally sourced native seedlings.
