One of the objectives of The Knox Environment Society is to foster within the community interest in the Knox environment. We believe in fostering a love and respect for nature as early as possible, which is why the KES makes donations of indigenous plants to schools, kindergartens, child care and other community groups in the City of Knox region.
Our policy is to provide one box free (up to 48 tubestocks) of any mixture of the species listed below with additional plants or other species at half price (where possible at $1 per tube) up to four boxes maximum. The availability of all plants and the price levied will be determined by their current availability and the value of any stock requested.
If you require a larger number of plants for your project, please consider applying for a Council or Landcare Community Grant to fund your project.
