The first official Landcare group formed in Victoria in 1986. Since then, the Landcare philosophy and model has spread across Australia, and now in many countries across the world.
Landcare groups work together to develop their own priorities, organise
community activities and source their own funding through a variety of
government, private and community organisations.
Landcare is a successful community based, and social, model to engage people in protecting their local environment and improving the natural resource management of their land, or public land they care about.
