The Muru Mittigar Provenance Nursery is a wholesale and retail nursery specialising in growing indigenous native provenance stock in forestry tubes – trees, shrubs, climbers and grasses. It is the only accredited Aboriginal run nursery in NSW. Muru Mittigar Ltd endeavours to employ and train local indigenous people. Staff training is integral to the success of the Muru Mittigar Ltd with all staff gaining expertise in seed collection, propagation, bush regeneration, and traditional plant usage.
The Muru Mittigar Provenance Nursery propagates vegetation in the form of trees, shrubs, climbers, grasses and ground covers, specialising in Western Sydney provenance and Cumberland Plain species. These plants are for sale to both commercial customers and the general public.
With the increasing demand for land for housing, habitat is now under more pressure than ever with many species now listed as threatened or endangered under NSW and Commonwealth legislation. The Muru Mittigar Provenance Nursery ensures that original local species are used in rehabilitation projects, council plantings, parklands and increasingly in home gardens, to preserve the gene pool of the local native plants.
