WHO WE ARE

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

HOW WE WORK

With thousands of 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.

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.
