Seeds for Change - Local Plant Fact Sheets

More than 90 local plant fact sheets have been created for the metro Adelaide area as part of the Seeds for Change project.

Find a local native plant to suit your purpose!
These fact sheets describe the basic info (size, flowers etc.) of local native plants, including planting and care info, how to propogate and the fauna they support.

Seeds for Change is a Junction Community Centre initiative.  Port Environment Centre is assisting by helping to share their work with the community.

Let’s see more of our endemic species growing in verges, gardens and parks to provide habitat for local fauna.

Here's an example - but there's 90+ more.

Seeds for Change - an Ottoway project

The Junction Community Centre (Ottoway) created Seeds for Change – an initiaive to help residents affordably reduce heat on their streets and homes while increasing local biodiversity and growing community connections.

Approx 2,500 plants were propagated and shared by the Seeds for Change project.

Seeds for Change reached out to Ottoway residents, schools, faith communities, businesses and the City of Port Adelaide Enfield to participate in a series of free propagation and planting events.  Endemic (local), drought tolerant species were planted in residents gardens, verges and parklands.

All plantings were accompanied by Seeds for Change signs with a QR code to the 100 fact sheets on the Seeds for Change Facebook page.

Seeds for Change Ottoway – a Junction Community Centre initiative – is funded by Green Adelaide and supported by the people of Ottoway, the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the Honorable Susan Close, Member for Port Adelaide. The project team thanks all those who have supported this community learning and sharing initiative.

This project shows that we can create habitat whilst enriching our environment, community and lives.
