National Landcare Network – Building a Resilient Australia

LNL logoThe National Landcare Network (NLN) represents the tens of thousands of people involved in the community Landcare movement across Australia.  The Landcare movement today is about much more than volunteers planting trees.

It encompasses everyone from suburban families spending a Sunday weeding their local patch of bushland, to farmers working to improve the productivity and sustainability of their properties, to Aboriginal peoples caring for country and passing on traditional knowledge about the use of plants and animals.

The NLN is calling for the next government to reinstate Landcare at the heart of environmental and agricultural policy for cost-effective and long-lasting results to build a resilient Australia.

To support this aim the NLN has released the following document that identifies the commitments being sought from the next federal government.  This publication is being provided for your information as well as for local Landcare groups to use in discussions with your local candidates and members.
