Would you like to form a new Landcare Group?

If there is no Landcare group nearby or if you have specific issues that require the formation of a new group, here are a few simple steps you will need to consider:

  • Talk to your neighbours, friends or surrounding property owners about your ideas
  • Work through Shoalhaven Landcare for support and advice
  • Contact other Landcare groups to get some advice on how they got started
  • Hold a public meeting to let others in the community know of your plans
  • In conjunction with Shoalhaven Landcare draw up a plan of action to guide your group into the future
