Help the Community and the Environment

The Leschenault Community Nursery is a not-for-profit social enterprise growing South West Native Plants and providing much needed places for community members to undertake voluntary or compulsory volunteer hours. The nursery accumulated the facilities using mainly secondhand equipment or reclaimed materials.


It’s time to upgrade and provide our wonderful and growing team of ‘volunteers’ with better working conditions.

We have had great support from our Sponsors.
