Our Native Garden Nursery (ONG) is a community-operated, local native nursery in Wodonga. They propagate locally sourced native plants for revegetation projects across the region.
ONG promotes native plant revegetation and habitat revitalisation throughout the Wodonga region and encourages community education through volunteer training and public events.
Our Native Garden Nursery (ONG) are establishing a local provenance seed bank for bushland regeneration projects around Wodonga. The first step is a community-led native plant ID and seed collection program facilitated by ONG. The nursery seeks interested community members to join our local native plant discovery program. The aim is to introduce community to plant ID techniques and seed collection methodology through bushland “walk and talks”. The program will ultimately guarantee the diversity of native plants ONG can grow for Wodonga with the local community invited to actively assist the nursery in achieving this.
