South Gippsland Landcare Network

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and meet. The South Gippsland Landcare Network stretches from Mt Best to Mt Lyal, and along the prom coast. It’s made up of 16 local groups working to preserve and protect the natural environment, while also enhancing the long-term sustainability of farming in this part of Victoria. We’re proud to work across both Bunurong and Gunaikurnai country, and to recognise the rich history embedded in this land we now share. As a network, we’re a diverse group – made up of primary producers, hobby farmers, tree changers, backyard gardeners and environmentalists of all sorts. This page is part of our community, so we welcome feedback and input from anyone who’s interested in having a voice here.

Future Drought Fund

Eight Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs will be established in Australia’s major climatic and agricultural zones across regional Australia. Hubs will be networks of researchers, primary producers, industry groups, community groups and others.

Although this program is focussed primarily on researchers, it is important that Landcare be recognised as an important pathway for adoption. Landcare Victoria has commenced discussion with a research group with this in mind. Groups interested in a possible future role should contact SGLN to discuss their ideas.

Landcare Farming launches My Landcare Legacy campaign

Celebrating National Agriculture Day on November 20, Landcare Australia, in partnership with the National Landcare Network (NLN), have launched a national Landcare Farming campaign ‘My Landcare Legacy’ to engage primary producers to share their Landcare stewardship story.

Landcare means different things to different people. At its very roots, Landcare is about people coming together and caring for the land to preserve our natural resources and biodiversity for generations to come. Over the next year the Landcare network is looking to explore farming stewardship stories and experiences, and are inviting other farmers and their industry to participate.

The ‘My Landcare Legacy’ campaign is the first step in building broader recognition of Landcarers who have been developing and supporting adoption of improved practices in Australian agriculture for over 30 years.

Landcare Farming Program Manager Mick Taylor says that “Landcarers have an opportunity to share what drives their passion for good farming practices and environmental stewardship in their business. By simply recording a video, Australian producers and land managers can share with the community why they are passionate about being good stewards of their land – and their vision for our farming future.”

Standout producers, networks and their Landcare projects will be identified during the campaign with Awards presented for best video, rising star award, best actor, longest distance a kit has travelled.
