Since 2004 the TLF has distributed around $400,000 to over 100 projects across Tasmania.
The Fund has received generous support from the JM Roberts Memorial Trust.
The TLF is operated by a Steering Committee and is supported by a Technical Advisory Panel in the assessment of applications.
Building a Resilient Australia
The National Landcare Network is the peak body for the representative community Landcare organisations in each Australian State and Territory, including Landcare Tasmania. The NLN provides a strong voice for the tens of thousands of Landcarers around Australia, working to ensure they are recognised, supported and resourced.
The National Landcare Network is calling for the next Australian government to reinstate Landcare at the heart of environmental and agricultural policy for cost-effective and long-lasting results to build a resilient Australia.
A new document “Building a Resilient Australia” sets out the needs of the Landcare community to all the parties and candidates in the Federal election and beyond.
A resilient Australia is one in which community wellbeing, environmental protection and sustainable agriculture are recognised as being essential to the long term economic and social success of our country.
