For plant orders contact our Nursery Manager Paul Moxon at
nursery@trla.org.au
or on 0425 337 475. 

The nursery team are producing an array of over 100 plants for growing in our region. These plants are grown from locally collected and propagated seed and are a variety of native and endemic species.

You will find plants for the garden, the paddock and your regeneration project right here in Tamworth.

Tamworth Regional Landcare Association (TRLA) wanted to grow endemic plants, in particular plants specific to local threatened ecological communities, to our region for group and project activities. Groups were collecting a variety of common and rare local seed and wanted a space in which to propagate and grow the seeds on a scale large enough for local distribution. 

The nursery space provides opportunity for students and volunteers to learn and share skills and propagate plants used for local working bees and maintained momentum for 10 years. 

  • Locally sourced seed, producing endemic species from numerous diverse sources and genetic stability 
  • Plants propagated with the assistance of a community enterprise using volunteers and people with disabilities and local employees.
  • Core expertise in local endemic species, biodiversity, regeneration and habitat plantings.
  • Producing plants with higher survival rates appropriate to our region.
  • We are the largest and most diverse source of endemic plants
  • If we don’t have your requirements in stock in sufficient numbers, we will work with you to meet your needs

Exciting New Resources for Education and Youth in the North West Region


We are thrilled to announce that Tamworth Regional Landcare is embarking on an exciting new initiative to establish resources aimed at education and youth engagement in North West NSW. Our goal is to inspire and empower the younger generation to take an active role in landcare and environmental stewardship.

Junior Landcare Family Fun!

The winter school holidays are fast approaching. We have created a free guide for some awesome Junior Landcare activities you can do right at home that are perfect for colder times of the year.


Caring for a native garden in winter

Sure is cold down here at the minute in Willow Tree!   

Having moved to a “Plantswomans” garden with a LOT of native plants, I thought I better do a bit of research and see if there were any essential tasks I need to keep in mind.  Luckily, it seems pretty simple… there are a few photos below, and I take NO credit for the garden! 

Our members often say that when you become part of Landcare, you’re not just joining a group, you’re becoming part of a family. The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.
