Following a well attended meeting at the Kongwak Hall early in 2012, at the instigation of landcare Facilitator Sarah van Stokrom, much interest was expressed in forming a new Landcare group in the Kongwak area, incorporating members from the Candowie /Lance Creek Landcare group, which has been dissolved.
So, on a chilly afternoon in late April 2012, in the old Butter Factory at Kongwak, the inaugural meeting of the new group was held, office bearers elected and goals and activities suggested and discussed. The groups’ priorities are diverse, from education and learning about effective land management, in particular drawing on local experience and knowledge, remnant protection and enhancement through to sharing a community focus and having fun with like minded people.
