Using local native plants in your garden can attract native wildlife, are better suited to the local soil type and once established, require less water than introduced plants.

In 2020, there will be one Native Plant Giveaway Day for each of Hornsby Shire Council's three wards. If you do not know which ward you live in, please refer to the Ward Map or enter your suburb at the NSW Electoral Commission website.

Sunday 28 June 2020 - Ward B Residents (Hornsby, Normanhurst, Pennant Hills, Thornleigh, Wahroonga, Waitara and Westleigh) residents.

Sunday 20 September 2020 - Ward C Residents (Beecroft, Castle Hill, Cheltenham, Cherrybrook, North Epping, West Pennant Hills) residents.
