National Landcare Program - Protected and productive environments

On 13 August, Vanessa Whelan and Sue Bestow will come and talk with Sutton landcare about the National Landcare program. They both work for the Australian Government and together with their colleagues, they are delivering the $1billion National Landcare Program (NLP). Their talk at the Sutton Landcare Group titled ‘Protected and Productive Environments’ will focus on the agricultural component of the NLP. They will present some background information on the program, looking at Landcare’s journey so far, what it has achieved and what this next phase of the program is looking to deliver. They will discuss the two main elements of the NLP, the Regional Land Partnerships component, which is delivered through a network of 54 Management Units nationally and the Smart Farms component, which is currently supporting over 200 projects Australia wide, and there are more to come. Their talk will also give examples of Landcare work being done locally and other work that is relevant to the Sutton area. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions about Landcare, so you are encouraged to attend and take this opportunity to talk to representatives of the government directly. The meeting will start at 7.30 at the Sutton Primary School. It will be followed by supper, and an opportunity to ask questions, and talk with other people from our community.
