People become members of organisations such as ours for a wide variety of reasons. Some may wish to understand more about Australian native plants, some may wish to collect or grow plants for their gardens, others may want to do something about the environment, like revegetation work. Whatever the reason, we can assist. We are a Society with a large cross-section of people from all walks of life. This is what makes the Australian Plants Society unique. There is always someone who can help.
Most people know that Australian native plants consist of more than just gum trees and wattles, but very few realise that there are literally thousands of species with many variations. Many of these plants can be grown in your garden so by having involvement with the Australian Plants Society, people gain invaluable knowledge and become an authority themselves.
One of the most important things that happens to an Australian Plants Society member, is that, when travelling, instead of seeing nothing along the roadways, a whole new world of plant species and their environments opens up, and life takes on a completely new meaning.
