A Landcare Facilitator works to support Landcare and production groups to adopt sustainable farm and land management practices and to protect our landscape.
Our Regional Landcare Facilitator helps to establish an adaptable, self- reliant, and appropriately informed network of community landcare and production groups.
They organise and encourage:
- Funding grants
- Adoption of improved land management
As part of this initiative, we also deliver workshops and field days for horse owners in best practice of the horse industry to reduce wind and water erosion, dieback, weed spread and nutrient loss
The workshops provide knowledge and practical skills in order to help improve quality, yield and profit on farms, whilst also raising awareness of the alternatives available to make better decisions and reduce environmental impact on our land and waterways.
