Kwinana residents are being encouraged to help plant native seedlings at Sloan’s Cottage on Sunday.

KWINANA residents can get back to nature, plant native seedlings and take home more than 16 plant varieties at the City’s Our Heritage free event taking place at Sloan’s Cottage this Sunday.

Mayor Carol Adams said participating in bushland planting was a fantastic way to teach children about nature and encourage a sense of respect and ownership of the local environment.

“In the coming years, they will be able to walk through Kwinana’s beautiful nature reserves and say ‘I helped create this’,” Cr Adams said.

Some of Kwinana’s hard-working community groups, including Kwinana Community Share, are taking part in the event to advertise their services.

“If you have ever thought about joining a local group, this is a great opportunity to get to know a bit more about what they do and see how you might like to get involved.”

There will also be coffee and food stalls, cottage tours, historical talks, animal farmyard, live music, veteran car and medieval clubs.

Residents are invited to take home native seedlings for just $1.50, subsidised by the City.

There will be 16 plant varieties available, including Kangaroo Paw, Banksias and other local wildflowers.

The event is part of the Australian Heritage Festival and Kwinana residents are asked to bring proof of residency to purchase up to 40 seedlings each.
