Workpower specialise in the collection of native plant seeds and their propagation. This is vital at a time when water shortages mean a greater reliance on drought resistant fauna. Property development means shrinking bushland, although new home owners are turning more to native shrubbery.
The bushland rich Councils of Gosnells, Joondalup, Mundaring and Swan have given Workpower permission to access and collect native plant seeds from bushland and natural areas.
This support enables Workpower to continue its important work in the environmental industry, as well as creating new employment opportunities for people with a disability or mental health issue.
