The Landcare network is made up of independent and regional networks, groups, landholders and farmers. The Landcare Farming Program, is a joint partnership between the National Landcare Network and Landcare Australia, funded by the Australian Government to strengthen the connection between Landcare and Australian agriculture and build agricultural community resilience.
The partnership is working together to promote the hard work and commitment of Australian farmers, land managers and our regional Landcare groups. If you’re passionate about your land, and the natural systems that sustain us, you can join with our network of over 25,000 farmers and land managers and get involved.
