Residents are invited to bring their green thumbs to the Leeton community centre, where there will be a native seed collection day tomorrow at 10am.
The event will be held by Murray local land services seed services coordinator Susan Logie, who will be teaching the finer points of collecting, identifying, and planting native seeds.
Ms Logie has a "passion for plants" and is keen to see local Leeton plants blooming again.
"It's very important to preserve local native plants, because they provide food and habitat for the birds, insects, and reptiles," Ms Logie said.
"Also, when you plant local native plants in your farm or backyard you find that these plants are used to the soil type and rainfall levels, so they tend to thrive."
Ms Logie has been a seed collecting enthusiast for over 20 years and hopes to sew the seeds of interest in more people in Leeton.
Participants are asked to bring a water bottle, hat, long pants, and enclosed shoes for a short field walk.
The event will cost $15 and include lunch and morning tea. Those interested in joining can contact local landcare coordinator Kathy Tenison on 0428 396 826.
