Tas Landcare Fund

"You have to make a decision as to what you do with your estate and I gave it some thought and I feel personally very fortunate that I could, at the end of the line, help the community through Landcare."

- Mr. John Roberts

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!

His vision has been realised through support of the Tasmanian Landcare Fund (a tax-deductible gift fund). This fund provides grants to the community landcare movement. Since 2004, over $500,000 of donations to the fund have been used to support important on ground work on farms, in schools and with community groups across the State.
