The Friends of Peacehaven Botanic Park see construction of a new native plant nursery as their #1 project over the next 12 months.
The initiative is being driven by newly re-elected president Gus Hamilton and treasurer John Herbert. Working in close consultation with Toowoomba Regional Council's senior landscape architect, the new nursery will provide much needed additional space to cater for increased plant stock to meet growing demand by customers.
Located on the north-eastern border of the park, the new nursery will include a greenhouse, herbarium, storage area, small meeting room, plant hardening area and wet area for plant propagation.
Plans are being prepared for submission to the Toowoomba Regional Council
