At Dandarrga Landcare Nursery, Dorrigo Showground, entrance via Tyringham Rd
There’s a wealth of knowledge and expertise amongst Dandarrga Landcare Group members who run the plant ID sessions every Friday at their nursery. Learn step by step how to use the plant identification key to learn about plants you have an interest in or discover species you’re yet to become familiar with. At the nursery established trees are available for purchase and ready to plant including about 15 species under propagation, including bush tucker plants such as Black Apple, Tamarind, Rose Myrtle, Daisy Yam and Sandpaper Fig.
They’ll be following the Local Landcare Group Hygiene Requirements listed below. Please read these and don’t come along if you’re vulnerable or have been overseas recently, been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms.
