Rural Properties Revegetation Program

Applications are now open

The Rural Properties Revegetation Program offers native plants free to City of Swan residents whose property is 4,000 square metres (1 acre) or greater in size.

The program aims to supply plants to residents in rural areas to encourage revegetation of their properties using native species. These plants are adapted to Perth region's soils and climate and have low watering requirements.
