Restoring landscapes, improving productivity

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:

  1. To address issues of land degradation both natural and agricultural by implementing best practice NRM.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
