The Wonthaggi Seed Bank & Nursery Inc (WSBN) is run and staffed by local volunteers and is a not-for-profit incorporated association.

We collect, store, propagate and supply indigenous seed and tube stock from local parks and reserves.

The plant types that we propagate are listed here…

We are working to conserve, create & restore landscapes within the Bass Coast Shire & surrounds with indigenous seed collection and propagation and are involved in a number of collaborative environmental & community programs.

Our collected seeds and propagated tube stock are used for local projects run by farmers, Landcare and local community groups, including those of the Cape Paterson Residents & Ratepayers Asn (CPRRA) and Bass Coast Friends of the Hooded Plover (FoWH).

We are licensed to collect seed by the Dept of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)  and by the Bass Coast Shire Council (BCSC).

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 our activities. Membership is open to those who share our aims.

If you wish to purchase plants or seed or would like to find out more, please contact us.
