Dear South Gippsland Landcarers, Friends and Colleagues,


In light of the continuing and escalating challenges of dealing with the Covid-19 Pandemic, the South Gippsland Landcare Network Inc. Board adopted an Epidemic/Pandemic Policy at its Board meeting held on Friday 13 March (attached).

  
The Board wishes to protect our Landcare community, staff, stakeholders and the general public in South Gippsland.  The Board has endorsed the use of the Infection Control Measures and Social Isolation as advised by the Commonwealth’s Chief Medical Officer.  


To this end, the Board has decided to have SGLN staff work from home if possible and for all public SGLN meetings and events to be postponed or held using virtual meeting methods such as webinars or Zoom.  


SGLN is in consultation with our project funders and partners to find the most suitable way to progress projects that keeps everyone safe and well.  


For the safety of Landcarers and the community, SGLN asks that the 15 Landcare groups in South Gippsland adopt a similar Pandemic Policy for your activities.  


SGLN will continue to produce its seasonal Network Notes and endeavour to keep you informed on SGLN’s activities and programs.  Please send us pictures and articles about your Landcare projects on your farms and any interesting or unusual nature and wildlife sightings. 
Also let us know how your Landcare group and members are dealing with the pandemic.  


Best Wishes in these challenging times,
Mark Walters
Chair, South Gippsland Landcare Network Inc. Board

How healthy is Landcare? Your opinion is wanted.
The Victorian Landcare Program 2019-20 Group Health Survey is now open and we would love to hear what you have been doing, how you are going and your priorities for the next 12 months.

The Group Health Survey provides a snapshot of the health of groups and the contribution of Landcare and environmental volunteering to a healthy environment.

Data collected through the Group Health Surveys is important to help DELWP and the CMAs understand the health of Landcare in Victoria and assists with planning the support provided through the Victorian Landcare Program.

Complete the survey by following this link: https://delwp.smartygrants.com.au/1920GHS.

Please complete by Sunday 26 July 2020.

The survey should take about 30 minutes to complete. You may want to complete it at the next meeting of your group or share it between group members to complete different sections.
