What we do:

  • SEED

    We start small and at the beginning – with seed. Climate and nature based solutions won’t work without it! Our seedbank provides genetically healthy seed with great diversity of species and supplies 1/3 of all the seed in the state. Seed is available via orders for direct seeding or for nurseries.


    We turn some of that seed into plants. Our nursery produces plants of high quality – representing many of the plant species found in the Goulburn Broken catchment. We supply plants via orders or through retail sales.


    We provide site visits for a fee to support you in your property restoration.
    We can supply a skilled bush crew to assist in landscape restoration.


    We support kinders, schools and community groups with programs to connect people to nature. From 5 year old’s to centenarians, the Euroa Arboretum is especially keen on educating communities and individuals about the values of the environment and the stewardship actions needed to protect it.


    We work closely with our partners. You’ll find us professional, dedicated and fun! We love what we do and we care for our community.


    The Arb is an incorporated, tax deductible charity, governed by a committee of management. We have a talented staff, committed to landscape restoration. We have a fabulous group of volunteers who support us each week in the seedbank, nursery, grounds and local environs.

Futureproofing with the Goulburn Broken Indigenous Seedbank

Climate and nature-based solutions won’t work without seed.’—Chris Cumming, GBCMA

To future proof our natural environment we need to produce, collect and store indigenous seed so it is available when we need it. Seedbanks do just that.

A native seedbank:

  • is a vital safeguard to restore degraded landscapes
  • builds resilience against future natural disasters
  • helps combat and mitigate climate change, habitat destruction and the catastrophic wildfires and floods that devastate our landscapes and wild seed populations.
  • Secure a diverse collection of native seed for large-scale landscape restoration and carbon-abatement projects in north-east and central Victoria.
  • Double existing seed supply and develop tailored native seed mixes for targeted projects.
  • Build suitable seed processing and storage facilities and convert 20 hectares of farmland to native seed production sites.
  • Empower locals, including First Nations people, to secure a greater diversity of native seed for biodiversity and carbon sequestrations projects.
