Seedling subsidy scheme
How can you do this?
Why we acted
“People are increasingly aware of the water saving and environmental benefits of growing local native plants and this scheme makes it easier for residents to source a range of these plants for their gardens”
With households using up to 71% of public water, the City of Kwinana understands the crucial need for residents to reduce their water use. By running the seedling subsidy scheme, the City demonstrates its leadership in improving water efficiency and conversation.
Assess your use
How we did it
The subsidy scheme is available to all residents of the City of Kwinana and advertised through the City’s newsletter, The Spirit of Kwinana, the local newsletter and the City’s Facebook page.
Each year residents are invited to purchase up to 40 plants per household at the annual Kwinana Heritage Event.
The seedlings available are all local native species that will grow easily and make a colourful and attractive addition to gardens.
