Active since: 1997
Key areas of activity:
Trentham District Landcare have been part of the Landcare movement since 1997, advocating for and supporting responsible, sustainable land use.
Our members are a diverse group made up of: traditional farmers; organic, sustainable and alternative farmers; towns people; and ‘tree changers’ seeking a life more connected to the environment.
Revegetation and weed removal have been key aspects of our work. This has included willow removal and planting along the Coliban River near Enders Bridge.
Our projects and events have involved multiple people from diverse perspectives including ecologist Damien Cook, birder and science writer Tanya Loos, and pest eradication expert Brad Blake.
Members get access to: our free tree program; presentations and demonstrations; equipment hire; and our bi-monthly newsletter; while enjoying the benefits of contributing to community-led responsible land-use projects.
Several of our members’ properties will be survey sites for the Upper Campaspe’s Landcare Network’s Pollinator Corridor Project.
