A space for plants and communities to grow.​

The Lumsden Community Nursery is NOW OPEN for volunteers and plant sales

Join us for one of our Plant Lovers Social Group sessions, or come along to one of our Monthly Plant Markets where you can buy great quality, locally sourced and grown plants.


MONTHLY PLANT MARKET – 1st Saturday of every month – 10am to 2pm

As we are mostly volunteer run, our opening hours are a bit irregular. BUT if you see us at the nursery you are welcome to come in, or if you want to arrange a time to come and look around let us know – we can arrange to meet you there.

The Lumsden Community Nursery:

PROVIDES a green hub for the community and a place to gather and collaborate.
It is a space for planting workshops, nursery sessions, hanging out, and schools and community groups to educate and grow.

PROVIDES employment.
The Lumsden Community Nursery employs a part-time Nursery Manager to take care of the day to day running of the nursery, and two part-time Operations Managers (jobshare) who organise planting days, workshops and other trust activities, as well as local contractors for maintenance of our larger projects.

PROVIDES FREE plants to local community planting projects.
Last year we grew over 10,000 plants – how’s that for our first year? Pretty awesome huh.  Some of those plants are sold to help with running costs, others are used in our local planting projects and the rest are DONATED to other local groups.

GROWS the right plants for our local eco-system.
Locally grown plants from eco-sourced seeds provides the best chance of success, and ensures appropriate biodiversity for the local area. Every year we hold several seed collecting trips and workshops – keep an eye on our facebook page for details of upcoming trips.
