Landcare Week 2020
Landcare Week this year is from August 3 - 9, with the theme of Get connected with the environment in your local community.
With over 6,000 groups and 100,000+ volunteers, the landcare movement is diverse and encompasses sustainable farmers, landcare groups and networks, Indigenous landcare, Bushcare and 'Friends of' groups, Coastcare, Dunecare and Rivercare groups, Junior Landcare (including early learning childhood centres, schools, Scouts, Girl Guides and youth groups) and other community groups involved in restoring and protecting their local environment.
You can use this opportunity to encourage environmental stewardship in your community. We have some digital resources on this page, visit Landcare to help promote Landcare Week.
If you are in Victoria, The 2020 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants are now open for schools (primary or secondary), kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts or Girl Guides or youth groups, youth environmental volunteer groups and Junior Landcare groups. You can use the Junior Landcare Learning Centre to help explore and develop some grant ideas.
Thanks to those who have already given support to our Junior Landcare Community page, please get in touch if you would like to be part of this page with us as it's great to be able to share organisations that share similar values.
