NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare

Partnerships are crucial to sustain a grassroots movement

One of the outcomes of the Sustaining Landcare campaign prior to the 2015 State Government election was the establishment of a cross-party group of NSW Members of Parliament. The members of this group have indicated their support for the goals of Landcare.

The NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare (PFL) provides an avenue for Members of Parliament to connect with and offer support to their local communities in suburbs, regional towns and remote areas.

We offer the PFL access to:

  • Hardworking people, committed to the stewardship of our natural resources
  • Landcare groups that get the job done – restoring and protecting natural resources and strengthening local communities
  • A network that crosses all boundaries: local, regional and state, social, gender, age, cultural background – a lifeline to maintaining the resilience of rural communities.
