Welcome to Neerim District Landcare

Neerim District Landcare has a simple purpose – to encourage a sustainable, integrated approach to agriculture and environmental management in our region.

As a community owned and driven group, Neerim District Landcare encourages thoughtful management of environmental assets with productive farmland.

Our members share common objectives to resolve local environmental issues, in collaboration with private property owners – for example, weeds and pests affecting agricultural productivity or waterway improvement projects.

We set our own agenda, initiating local projects at sites chosen in discussion with landholders and are only able to achieve what we do through the inspiring contributions of passionate locals who share our commitment to sustainable agriculture and the environment.

If you would like to join the group, please go to the Membership link.
