You can help revegetate Borthwick Park from the comfort of your own backyard.

We are looking for some keen local gardeners to strike and care for a batch of Myoporum parvifolium (Creeping Boobialla) cuttings this Spring/Summer. Volunteers will plant out your successful cuttings in Autumn/Winter 2024.

Creeping Boobialla ground covers thrive in Borthwick Park. They provide excellent shelter and food for small critters like lizards and insects, and out-compete weeds and grasses for nutrients and light. More critters, less weeding, love that!

Or try your hand at striking Ruby Saltbush or correas or your favourite Borthwick Park shrub or ground cover. For information on the striking process click here for a fabulous online tutorial by Everyday Wits then talk to John (0422 909 710) about which shrubs in the park to source your cuttings from.

Plant propagation is good fun, slightly addictive and, best of all, will make a difference in Borthwick Park, the green heart of Kensington.
