In late 2019 the Christie Centre purchased the GrowAbility Nursery (previously the Mildura Native Nursery) continuing an environmentally sustainable business to offer climate appropriate plants for the Mildura and wider Sunraysia area.
At GrowAbility, we specialise in hardened native Australian varieties whist our advanced deciduous trees, ornamental and landscaping varieties have been grown to withstand the challenging Australian climate. With sizes ranging from tube stock to advanced, we have plants to suit your needs.
The nursery is operated by a highly skilled and qualified horticultural team with many years of training and knowledge. As a social enterprise of the Christie Centre opportunities are created for meaningful employment for people of all abilities.
