Who are we?
- Community planting days, where members and other volunteers work together to plant 1000’s of indigenous plants. These hands-on days finish with a great lunch, where we get to relax and catch up with other landcarers.
- We provide and promote a range of engaging and informative environmental and sustainable farming educational activities during the year. This may involve hearing from guest speakers, farm walks and other hands-on activities. We also promote many great educational opportunities provided by the Bass Coast Landcare Network and other Landcare groups to our members.
- New projects for 2024 include an Interpretive Trail Project on the Great Southern Rail Trail and formation of a Grower’s Group which will grow local indigenous plants for a range of projects. More projects are on the drawing board!
