The Roamers are a new-ish Landcare group inspired to make a difference in the Huon Valley.
The Roamers are taking the approach that Landcare can be whatever you want it to be – education, experience, appreciation, caring. The Roamers run traditional on-ground projects with a bit of a twist, and some one-off events. Activities include planting, weeding and track work, but also kids’ programs and activities such as discovery trails, art, craft or photography classes, social media projects, pop-up events (e.g. open-air exhibitions, theatre, music, dance), regatta days, wrapper-free picnics, twilight events, men’s shed projects and many others.
We have seen other Landcare volunteers working across the Huon Valley to increase community access and enjoyment of coasts, rivers, parks and reserves – and we want to help too! Our aim is to complement existing Landcare activities and offer alternative experiences to members of the community who aren’t able to commit to regular working bees or Committee meetings. We want to help to capture the energies of busy volunteers, and to enable them to work at a time and pace that suits them, on a project of their choice and inspiration.
Membership with Landcare Tasmania is supported by Huon Valley Council
