CONTRARY to its name, Men of the Trees is a community nursery manned by volunteers, men and women of all ages.

About 30 volunteers grow local native seedlings at the not-for-profit nursery.

Member Erica Thomas said when the new season begins in October, the group will be looking for more volunteers.

As a result, Men of the Trees will host an annual Open Day on July 11 from 9am to 2pm in the middle of Rockingham Golf Club’s course on Elanora Drive.

Turn left once inside the golf club’s car park and follow the dirt track for 1km.

End-of-season stock of waterwise local natives will be on sale with plants from $1.
