Hawkesbury Community Nursery open on Wednesdays and 1st Saturday of the month
Hawkesbury Community Nursery is now open to the public on Wednesdays from 9am to 1pm or by appointment and on the 1st Saturday of the month from 9am to midday (excluding December and January) under COVID-Safe guidelines.
Thanks to the hard work of the community nursery volunteers who grow the plants, over 150 native plant species are available for purchase at great prices.
Hawkesbury Community Nursery is a green thumb’s dream come true. The plants are all native to the Hawkesbury area, ranging from trees, shrubs and groundcovers to grasses, sedges (a grass-like plant with triangular stems), and climbers.
Nursery staff are also available to provide advice on the best plant for each particular situation, taking into consideration height, soil type, flowering, light, aspect and maintenance.
Hawkesbury Community Nursery is encouraging local residents to plant in their backyard and beautify their home. Recent research has found that around 55% of Australians felt that time in nature improved their mood or eased anxieties during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
