Community of Practice

The role of the Community of Practice is to increase the activity and effectiveness of the NSW Landcare network by providing a consistent approach to building capacity across the state. This will be done by building on the existing channels in which Landcarers share information, learn, communicate, network, collate data, access training, develop case studies and tell stories.
