“Accordingly, we are declaring next year the Year of Landcare – it will be the first year in a Decade of Landcare that will provide as never before a focus for protecting the most fundamental ingredient both of our natural environment and of our agricultural prosperity – our soil.”

Unsurprisingly, the Landcare movement developed nationally in 1989 as a result of farmers and environmentalists uniting to care for our land and water. Farmers realised it made good business sense, and environmentalists realised they needed to work constructively with farmers, as managers of over half of Australia’s land mass.
