Wildflowers in schools

The Wildflowers in Schools program will continue for a third year in 2022 and we are currently looking for schools who would like to participate.

This program is provided at no-charge and is supported by the Dame Phyllis Frost Women’s Centre nursery in Ravenhall, who have kindly offered to grow seedlings for us again this year.

We are offering 50 wildflower seedlings per school to 10 schools in Brimbank. As places are limited, we encourage you to get in contact ASAP if you would like to participate.

To be eligible, schools must:

  • have a minimum area of 4m2 allocated within the school – sunny position preferred
  • have the capacity to plant the seedlings shortly after receiving them (around 50 tubestock plants in Aug/Sept)

These important plants attract beneficial insects that assist with pollination – a perfect addition for schools with food or habitat gardens.

Primary and high schools can register their interest by sending an email with Subject “Wildflowers in Schools Program” to environment@brimbank.vic.gov.au including the school name, contact person and phone number.

Contact the Conservation Community Liaison Officer by sending an email to environment@brimbank.vic.gov.au to express your school’s interest.
