The Derwent Catchment Project is a grass roots community run organisation that aims to increase and improve the natural condition of the Derwent Catchment.
The committee has three main focus areas: 1. Farming, 2. Weed Management and 3. Conservation Projects.
Our mission is:
- To address issues of land degradation both natural and agricultural by implementing best practice NRM.
- To support community and industry to innovate and improve on practice by attracting investment and sponsorship for improvements in land condition in the Derwent Catchment.
- To empower and inspire the community to be involved in active management of the Catchment.
We also operate a native plant nursery for growing plants for shelterbelts, gardens and revegetation projects across the catchment.
