Caring for the environment
Apace WA is a not-for-profit, environmental community organisation located in North Fremantle. It has been operating for over 30 years and provides employment opportunities for disabled people.

Around 260 different native species for the local area are grown at Apace. These include ground covers, small and large shrubs, trees, grasses, climbers, bush tucker plants, screening plants and more.

If you're not sure what to plant, you can use a handy map on the Apace website to determine the soil type in your area, then go to the online nursery and find out which plants will grow best. Or just ask the friendly, experienced staff, who will help you to make the right choices for your garden's conditions.

Apace grows 400,000 native plants a year, but this year they haven't sold as many plants as usual so they have a surplus of tree tubes. As a result they are selling off most of the plants for $1 a tube instead of the usual $3.

You can still plant natives in gardens in summer as long as you water them about twice a week to begin with. Plant purchases help to support the fantastic work Apace does, so get along to North Fremantle and get three plants for the price of one while stocks last.
