UPDATE: This planting day has been rescheduled from Saturday 5th June to Saturday 24th July.

If you had registered for the June date your registration has been transferred and we hope you are able to join us on the 24th July to plant 4,000 indigenous plants. If you are not able to attend, we ask that you cancel your ticket online, so it can free up a place for another volunteer. 


Roll up your sleeves and help plant 4,000 native plants in Bacchus Marsh at the 15th annual Grow West Community Planting Day on Saturday 24 July.

This highly anticipated community event was sadly canceled in 2020 but is back this year bigger and better than ever for World Environment Day 2021.

The planting day will be held at Kel Shields Flora Reserve in Bacchus Marsh. The five-hectare reserve forms an important urban biolink, connecting the escarpment with the Werribee River that runs through town.

The day will run a bit different to previous years, with volunteers being split into a morning session (9.30am-12pm) and an afternoon session (1.30pm-4pm). Volunteers can select their preference when registering.
