What grows here will help individuals, passionate gardeners, community groups and businesses find out what plants will best suit their space and needs. See detailed descriptions of over 1000 Australian Native Plants ranging from trees and shrubs to ground-covers and grasses.
The App contains both botanical and commonly known names, and includes details of flower colours, blooming seasons, preferred soil ph, and most suitable locations for habitation. A linked Learning Hub will offer an additional layer of information and resources to support teachers and learners as well as facilitate citizen scientist and custodianship of plants. (Crowd-sourcing).
PLEASE NOTE: This app was developed in 48 hours as part of GovHack 2014: http://hackerspace.govhack.org/content/what-grows-here - the User Interface is very rough at this stage. Please submit any suggestions here: https://github.com/NatureNinjas/whatgrowshere/issues and if you like our effort consider voting for us at the GovHack site.
Our team will continue to develop this App as time and support permits.
