Landcarer – the online community platform to connect, collaborate and communicate
It is easy to get involved in Landcarer – a FREE online community platform designed for people with a shared vision to protect, enhance or restore the natural environment in their local community through sustainable land management and conservation activities.
Landcarer is an easy to use tool to help you share, learn, and interact with like-minded individuals, groups, organisations and project stakeholders who are involved in landcare and natural resource management activities. It’s the only online platform dedicated to promoting landcare.
Here is why you need to register and get involved!
Designed specifically for you - a landcarer
Content on the platform isn’t diluted. It’s a pure and helpful feed of landcare related information – from farming techniques to upcoming environmental grants. On Landcarer you won’t be bogged down by cat memes, rather, you will be immersed in the exchange of knowledge from landcarers across Australia!
Free tools to support your work
Landcarer includes a wide array of tools that can assist in your work as a project manager or organiser. The site has built-in project management tools that allow you to track and share the progress your group is making, manage your contacts, and coordinate with other organisations.
Your data works FOR YOU, it's not used to sell you things
On Landcarer, information you submit about your local group or community’s activities is used to help you. How? Through cumulative data compilation. When you submit information on your group’s activities we add that to our database of all the amazing activity landcarers are engaged in across Australia. Then, we look at the numbers. Landcarer helps us build a picture of how effective community volunteering truly is, and helps us prove the value you bring to Australia’s local environments.

One of the most powerful features of Landcarer is the ability to record reportable results from your activities, in an easy and visually meaningful way.
