Who is Landcare Tasmania?

We are the peak body that works to represent, strengthen, support and grow Tasmania's landcare movement. We have over 180 members including groups and individuals who work on projects in their area to improve the health of our natural and working environments. The work our members do  include things like eradicating invasive weeds, re vegetating bushland, preventing erosion, cleaning up beaches and much more.

We deliver a range of core functions and vital services that support the work of our members including distributing grants for on ground projects, providing cost effective group insurance,  and representing the interests of our members to the Tasmanian government. 

Vicki Campbell, Volunteer

""Volunteering is an adventure - it's taken me to places I would otherwise never have seen."

Sarah Medwin, conservation landholder

"We are stewards of the land and it feels good to protect and restore the natural areas on our property."

Anne Booth, Friends of Maria Island

"I find it inspiring to do something practical and it gives me the opportunity to meet others with a passion for important natural places."

John Atkinson, Farmer

"It’s good to know that a weed is being tackled with neighbouring properties. It pushes you to keep going."

Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF)

Mr-Roberts_black.jpg

In 2003 Landcare Tasmania was approached by a retired farmer, Mr John Roberts, who wanted to make a bequest that would make a difference. He believed that if we looked after our land we would be able to produce healthy food and therefore healthy people – it was that simple!  This fabulous vision to provide support for hands-on, practical projects to be undertaken on farms, in schools and with community groups to improve Tasmania’s water, land, plants and animals has been realised through the Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF). Donate to this fund and your contribution will continue to support the work of Landcare in Tasmania.
