PROJECTS

Landcare NSW works on a range of projects with both government and non-government partners to ensure that our environment, farms and communities are supported through a range of initiatives.

Our unique Landcare network of local and regional Landcare Coordinators, volunteers, individuals and businesses provides a strong link to all rural, urban and regional communities in NSW.

One of the key and unique strengths of Landcare in NSW is that the communities that form the Landcare movement have an intimate understanding and knowledge of issues related to their local environment, farms and communities and are therefore best placed to ensure appropriate solutions are developed, delivered and maintained.

Working with Landcare NSW to deliver projects through its Landcare member groups generates a multiplying effect on investment through the legacy of ownership it creates at a local level. This drives stronger project continuity, and sees communities maintain long term outcomes.
