An important consideration in any restoration project is where to source seed and other plant material to be planted on selected sites. Similarly, evaluating how to store and germinate seed can have a profound impact on long-term success. Despite the importance of these decisions, obtaining the necessary information can be challenging. The Restore and Renew NSW project aims to overcome this challenge.

A survey of species commonly used in restoration across NSW
The list of species to be included in the Restore and Renew NSW project will be finalised over the coming months through further consultation and stakeholder forums. To be notified of upcoming stakeholder forums subscribe to ANPC News
The Australian Network for Plant Conservation, in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust, conducted an online survey of restoration practitioners in 2013. The key objectives of the survey were to identify species most commonly used in restoration across NSW and to collect suggestions for which species should be included in the Restore and Renew NSW project. The survey was launched in September 2013 and closed December 2014. A total of 247 responses were received. Outcomes of the survey will be shared shortly.
Seeking project partners and sponsors
Continued implementation of the Restore and Renew NSW project is dependent upon securing sufficient practical and financial support. Interested parties can discuss opportunities with Dr Maurizio Rossetto.
