Buffers to Bushland

Buffers to Bushland is a rural revegetation scheme that sees more than 10,000 local-native tubestock seedlings distributed to rural properties, schools and community groups across Playford each year.

Since the program’s inception in 1999, we distributed more than 200,000 seedlings.

Ordering Plants

Owners or managers of rural properties, schools and community groups in Playford must initially register and place plant orders in March / April each year at no cost (contact details below).

Plants are available in boxes of 50 with the mix of species determined by what is suitable for the location of the property registered. We will provide advice on what you need for your area.

Please note: Plants are not available for suburban yards and gardens.

Volunteering: Boxing Up Day

The 10,000 plus plants are sorted and boxed by our wonderful team of volunteers at the Playford Operations Centre in Davoren Park. If you are interested in becoming an environment volunteer see how you can get involved with the greeningvolunteers

All Buffers participants (owners or managers of rural properties, schools and community groups) are welcome to help our dedicated team on the day.
