OUR APPROACH TO PARTNERSHIPS
Landcare NSW seeks to position the Landcare movement in NSW as a partner of choice for the delivery of services that benefit community Landcare, our partners and ultimately our farms, our environment and our communities. Through this approach, Landcare NSW is building an ecosystem of like-minded organisations that delivers value and resilience to the Landcare movement and our partners.
As the peak organisation for the NSW Landcare community, Landcare NSW chooses partnerships with government, private and not-for-profit organisations whose values and strategic objectives align with those of the NSW Landcare community. Landcare NSW works closely with the National Landcare Network, Landcare Australia and the seven State and Territory Landcare peak bodies to build a strong, influential and integrated Landcare community that works, collaborates and cooperates together to achieve shared vision, values and goals.
