Council operates two community nurseries, one in Innisfail and one in Tully.
These nurseries produce high-quality local native plants for rehabilitation programs and public sales.
The Innisfail Nursery (corner of Campbell & Sundown sts) is open for public sales on Thursdays from 8am to 3pm, and the Tully Nursery (beside the Council depot, Anderson St) is open on Fridays from 8am to 3pm.
Both nurseries run a community volunteer program. New volunteers are always welcome. The Innisfail volunteer group meets on Thursday mornings from 8am to 11am. The Tully group meets on Friday mornings from 9am to 12pm.
Tree giveaways are held throughout the year and are advertised in the local media, in our enewsletter, on our facebook page and in the "Latest News'' section on the home page of this website.
