Who is Landcare Tasmania?

We work to represent, support, strengthen and grow community Landcare. 

Our vision is simple but ambitious –

for all the land & coasts to be cared for by the community.

It’s about empowering people to make a difference.


Community Landcare is a unique movement in which individuals and groups work together to improve the health of our natural and working landscapes. Landcare’s approach to environment and sustainability issues is ‘bottom up’, with the community taking ownership of the problem and being actively involved in the solutions.

We are the peak body that works to represent, support, strengthen and grow Tasmania's Landcare movement. We have over 300 members groups plus individuals who work on projects in their area to improve the health of our natural and working environments. The work of our members includes eradicating invasive weeds, revegetating bushland, managing farms to improve sustainability, controlling 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 all levels of government.

Landcare Tasmania acknowledges and pays respect to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional and original owners, and continuing custodians of this land on which we live today.  We acknowledge Elders – past and present.

Tasmanian Landcare Fund (TLF)


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.
