FUTURE CONCERNS FOR LANDCARE
October 26, 2009
Earlier this year, Australia commemorated ‘National Landcare Week’ – recognising 20 years of outstanding practical environmental service across our nation.
Landcare was formed by the Hawke Government with bipartisan support and there are more than 4500 community Landcare groups in operation today.
To mark Landcare Week, the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry distributed a media release to recognise the fact that more than 100,000 volunteers roll up their sleeves in communities each year to replant vegetation, repair erosion and improve agricultural production.
