A small group of enthusiastic gardeners got together in 1989, and decided to make the suburb of Adamstown a little greener. The act of propagating and planting trees was greater than the sum of its parts – and Trees In Newcastle was formed. We have since collected seed, propagated and planted thousands (and thousands) of local, native species. This could not have been possible without our members, volunteers and supporters.
We are now a proud community organisation, working throughout the Hunter region and with locals wherever we go. By becoming a member of Trees In Newcastle, you have the opportunity to help shape our future. We may have begun by planting in a Newcastle suburb, but where we end up will be influenced by our members.
Members are entitled to 2 free plants a year and discounted tubestock at $3.50. Members purchasing online will receive extra plants when picking up ordered stock. We need and value your support so that we can continue our work in revitalising the landscape of our area.
Members of Trees In Newcastle can:
- Participate in hands-on activities including seed collection, plant propagation, tree planting and community education projects.
- Volunteer at Trees in Newcastle Nursery
- Access free information and advice on growing native plants and selecting the appropriate species for your site.
- Join the Board or be involved in forums and Annual General Meetings. To be a successful Board, we need people with skills in community engagement, fundraising, finance and account keeping, marketing, law, grant writing, building, electrical, plumbing – you name it, we need it!
