WHO WE ARE

We are the peak representative body and voice of community Landcare in NSW.

HOW WE WORK

With over 60,000 active Landcarers in NSW, Landcare NSW acts as the conduit between local Landcare communities and key decision makers, working to ensure that local Landcare communities are supported at every level by providing leadership, skills, resources and representation.

Most importantly, we want the Landcare movement to be recognised by Government, Corporates, Philanthropy and the general community as the most effective, impactful and influential ‘go-to-vehicle’ for the management of our land, environment and communities in rural and urban areas.

We generate revenue from diverse streams to support our member Landcare groups and provide financial support for vital projects that bring together farmers, landowners, conservationists and nature lovers at a local level to address local issues. We coordinate and facilitate the building of skills, capacity, strength, connections and partnerships at every level, from individual volunteers and groups to district networks and regional associations.

Landcare NSW works to support the community Landcare movement by partnering with State and Federal Governments, Corporates, not-for-profit organisations, farming peak bodies, and other Landcare state/ territory and national peak bodies.
