Member Support Program
We support our members with project assistance and the resources needed to coordinate their volunteers.
This is our core. Community Landcare depends on a foundation of well-resourced members. Our members are landholders, farmers, schools, and community groups full of Tasmanians from all walks of life, who care about the health of their local landscapes. Local people have a sense of ownership and long-term connection to place. This is why the community is best placed to look after their local landscapes. This is why the grassroots, "bottom-up" approach of the community-led Landcare movement is so enduring -- and worth investing in.
