LANDCARE

The Regional Landcare Facilitator (RLF) program establishes new networks and builds on existing one to develop adaptable, knowledgeable and sustainable Landcare and production groups within the DCQ region.

This is achieved by improving group access to funding opportunities, building key partnerships, providing training and information opportunities to facilitate the adoption of sustainable land management practices that:

  • Maintain, for current and future generations, the region’s capacity to sustainably produce food and fibre;
  • Enhance the capacity of rural and related landscapes to deliver ecosystem services such as clean air and water, healthy soils and biodiversity conservation;
  • Build a vibrant and resilient Landcare and production group community; and
  • Establish a Landcare ethos within the wider community
