Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery (1998-2010)
Soft Opening of new Nursery, Wisdom Street (29 August 2012)
The Rozelle Bay Nursery plans to sell plants. Their current capacity to produce enough stock is limited by their current temporary facilities. But now that a purpose built nursery is open in Wisdom Street this will change.
The Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery, works to reintroduce some of the local provenance plant species and strains which have adapted to the local area's climate, rainfall patterns, salt water innundation, sunlight, soil, birds, animals and insects. The purpose built nursery located in Wisdom Street Annandale, features recycled ironbark timber from the old Pyrmont Bridge, perhaps from an ironbark tree that grew in Annandale.

Volunteers in the Nursery propagate Local Provenance for planting by Bushcare groups, working in Callan Park, Balmain and Annandale.
The nursery is operated by volunteers and is open to everyone. Activities include collecting and propagate native seeds, weeding and planting. There are no prerequisite skills or knowledge required - but volunteers learn many new skills and get to know other locals. A hat and sturdy shoes are all you need to bring. The Nursery provides tools and protective gear for the variety of activities.
Just turn up at:
