Landcare Tasmania’s Seed Resilience Project

As part of our Seed Resilience Project, Landcare Tasamnia holds workshops and events with the aim of creating a network of people who are involved and skilled in the collection, storage and distribution of native seed to meet the demand of revegetation projects in Tasmania. Keep an eye on our Outreach Calendar for upcoming Seed Collection & Propagation Workshops or register your interest in training to receive email updates from us.

The goal of this project is to set up community seed banks across the state, which will be community driven with Landcare coordination to support its effectiveness.
