Jiggi Catchment Landcare Group Inc is a community-based, voluntary organisation located in northern NSW.

We care for the land through sustainable Landcare practices

The group operates in the Jiggi Creek and now Goolmangar Creek catchments, in Northern NSW. The group has played a major role in raising awareness, influencing farming and land management practices and delivering environmental outcomes throughout the catchments.

The group accesses funding to assist landowners to care for their land. The work undertaken captures a range of activities such as threatened species habitat enhancement, management of erosion through revegetation of stream banks, sustainable farm practices, restoration of native habitats and wildlife corridors, revegetation to enhance these areas and linkages, control of weeds and pests, protection of freshwater fish habitat and the development of local natural resource management skills and knowledge.

We work with farmers and landholders who are already undertaking this important work but need some assistance to reach their goals.

Our focus is to look after ‘our catchment’ and partner with other Landcare groups and community organisations to ensure the land and water we all use for agriculture and other land uses  remains healthy and self sustaining and retains the present conservation values.


This is a project located in the Richmond Catchment in Northern NSW, that has a life of six years and is funded by the NSW Environmental Trust. Jiggi Catchment Landcare Group Inc, are the project managers and have teamed up with other groups with a shared commitment to restoring native vegetation with an aim of expanding connectivity on a landscape scale. The project is using wildlife corridors to connect the groups. Stakeholders include Mulvena Road Landcare, Nimbin Rocks Cooperative Landcare, Jiggi Catchment Landcare, Goolmangar School and Jiggi School Landcare groups. There are seven properties in total, three of the particpating properties are multiple occupancy or community title land with numerous shareholders to contribute to achieving the desired outcomes. Thirty six hectares of native bush have been restored in the first two years of the project and 1746 endemic species have been planted. Many threatened flora and fauna species have been recorded on the property. Annual field days give the community an opportunity to view the incredible results that can be achieved from a long term funded project and more importantly committed landowners. The two primary schools included in the project participate in environmental education days with planting and Waterwatch activites.
