While excellent progress has been achieved, the job is not done: Landcare is still not on a stable footing and further work is needed to build the infrastructure to support the grassroots movement at all levels.
Transforming our Landscape Together
Landcare is a community-based approach to managing and protecting our natural resources – creating more productive and sustainable farms, conserving our environment and building more cohesive and resilient communities. This iconic Australian institution, represented by the distinctive symbol of the ‘caring hands’, has transformed the landscape, enabling farmers, landowners and conservationists to work together at a local level on local issues. The replication of Landcare in over 20 countries demonstrates how a voluntary, grassroots movement can have global impact. Landcare NSW was established in 2007 as the representative body for our members – regions, networks, groups and individuals. We promote and advocate for ecologically sustainable development in NSW in partnership with governments, philanthropists and the community.

Supporting our Landcare communities
In 2015 Landcare NSW and the NSW Government commenced a partnership to provide structures and services to enable Landcarers to focus on their on ground work. The LOCAL LANDCARE COORDINATOR INITIATIVE is bringing tangible benefits to communities in natural resources management, building social capital and creating rural jobs. Check out this VIDEO which tells the story of the impact this program is making. We are now working hard to sustain this Landcare support beyond 2019. Click below to find out more:
