Aims of the Seedbank
To provide a Seedbank in the West Gippsland region for the use and benefit of the community as a whole.
To encourage community members to plant indigenous species in their environmental projects, either through direct seeding or by planting tube-stock grown from locally collected seed.
To increase the knowledge of people in the community about the collection, germination and storage of local seed.
That seed is collected and sold to nurseries and landholders, and to supply orders for revegetation projects funded e.g. by Melbourne Water, local Gippsland Landcare groups and Greening Australia.
That all collected seed be carefully cleaned and processed before details are added to a database and seed put into storage.
