    Gazania Free Gardens - Native Plant Give Away - Port Adelaide Enfield

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Do you have gazanias in your coastal garden? Want to replace them with FREE local native plants that are water-wise, resilient, and attract birds, butterflies, and animals?

    Gazanias are a declared weed that harm our natural environment. They commonly 'escape' from gardens as their seeds easily spread, they're dumped in garden was te or are planted illegally. Once established in our coastal environments, they quickly outcompete local native plants and reduce habitat, food and shelter for local wildlife. They are costly to control and take valuable resources away from other important issues.

    If you're a coastal resident, holiday homeowner or business, you can help by getting involved in our native plant giveaway!

    What you need to do:

    - Carefully remove gazanias in your garden (maybe you have a single plant or a patch?).
    - Take a picture of the gazanias removed from your garden!
    - Dispose of them carefully (don't dump or transport them elsewhere).
    - Register and come to North Haven Surf Life Saving Club on the Sunday 19th May 10am – 12 noon. Show us your picture, and we'll send you home with a bucket of local coastal plants.
    - We'll also provide you with a free 'Coastal Gardens planting guide'

    Book now to register your interest in attending this event. Limited native plants are available (limit of one bucket of plants per household applies).
