Growing the Foreshore's Future is an annual project that involves local residents volunteering to grow native foreshore plants in their own homes and at the Council's native nursery.
|The plants are grown over 6 to 8 months and are then planted at selected sites along the foreshore over a number of planting days. |
Each year local residents, Community Groups and local schools participate in the project. Since the project began in 2004, it's estimated that over 25,000 seedlings have been grown and planted along the 13km of Kingston's Foreshore.

| Growing the Foreshore's Future 2011/2012 Program - Activity Days|
|Each year, Kingston Council invites local residents to take part in this foreshore planting program. |
At home plant propagation and nursery days are held in October and February with planting days to be held in May and June as part of the Growing the Foreshore’s Future program.
These activity days provide a great opportunity for new residents to come down and learn about the program.
In addition to involving and educating the local community about foreshore vegetation, Growing the Foreshore’s Future aims to increase the survival of plantings, improve biodiversity and help to prevent erosion through replanting.
The nursery days will be held at Kingston’s Plant nursery (Southern End of Scotch Parade, Melways Pg 97 F3) on:
Sunday, 30th October, 2011 from 10am-12.
Saturday, 11th February, 2012 from 10am-12.
Planting days will be advertised at a later date.
