Landcare and other groups and organisations undertake works throughout most of the year; whether it's spraying and removing weeds to planting trees and fencing.

There are a number of ways you can become involved in Landcare through a variety of activities including:

  • Planting vegetation
  • Direct seeding
  • Manual removal of weeds
  • Spraying (hand spraying and large scale spraying)
  • Fencing
  • Running a workshop
  • Joining a committee
  • Act as Project Coordinator for activities
  • Be involved in your group's administration:
    • Book keeping
    • Writing newsletters or articles
