Landcare is a grassroots movement that harnesses individuals and groups to protect, restore and sustainable manage Australia’s natural environment and its productivity. It had its genesis in initiatives to improve agricultural productivity through sustainable land management. The movement has grown from this to a broader focus on sustainable management of all of Australia’s natural resource assets and now encompasses individuals and groups across the whole landscape from coastal to urban and remote areas of Australia.
With over 6000 Landcare and Coastcare groups nationwide there is likely to be a group near you, possibly working on a project right under your nose. Volunteers range from kids to retirees, surfers to farmers and CEO’s to students. United by a shared desire to create positive change in their communities, these individuals recognise that as a group their efforts have greater impact.
The success of the Landcare "bottom up model" can be attributed to the inspiring contributions made by the passionate individuals who make up Australia’s Landcare movement. Their sense of stewardship, enduring commitment and deep appreciation for our natural environment is why Landcare exists today. Its people are its greatest asset. Thank you to all Landcare volunteers, fundraisers and donors - including the many employees supporting and donating via our workplace giving program.
