Crows Nest Community Nursery
opens every Thursday 
8.30am - 1.00pm.
Plants $1.50 and $2.50 

The Crows Nest Community Nursery is Toowoomba Regional Council's environmental nursery. Staffed by one professional nurseryperson, and a team of happy volunteers, it specialises in growing the native plants of the broader Toowoomba region.

If you would like to plan some of your purchases in advance, you can get a stock list emailed to you by asking Lisa, at:
or phoning the Toowoomba Regional Council 13 18 72 and asking for the Nursery Manager.

To find the Nursery:
Approaching Crows Nest from the south (i.e. from the Toowoomba direction), slow down at the 80 sign and take the first turn right into Industrial Avenue.
Follow the green street signs (which say NURSERY).  

Volunteering at the Nursery
 Much of the work that keeps the Crows Nest Community Nursery going is done by the happy band of volunteers.
It's a great opportunity to learn more about plants, make new friends, and do something worthwhile for our local environment.
The jobs done include:
  • Planting seed
  • Potting on the little seedlings, into nursery tubes.
  • Putting plants out on the shelves. 
  • Weeding and tidying them as required.
 No expertise is needed. Other volunteers help you to learn on the job. Just bring along a pair of willing hands and a smile.
