Wonthaggi Seed Bank and Community Nursery

The Wonthaggi Seed Bank and Community Nursery (WSB) is run and staffed by local volunteers.  It works to collect, store, propagate and supply indigenous seed and tube stock from local parks and reserves.

The seeds and tube stock are used for local projects run by farmers, Landcare and local community groups, including those of the CPRRA and FoWH shown on this website.

WSB is  licensed to collect seed by the Dept of Environment, Land, Water and Planning  and by the the Bass Coast Shire Council.

If you have an interest in the collection of seeds, the propagation of plants or in maintaining our natural environment - or would like to learn more about it - why not join in the WSB activities. 

If you  are interested in purchasing plants or seed or would like to find out more about the Wonthaggi Seedbank and Community nursery please email us by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
