A strong voice and strong support for Victorian Landcare


Join us
 

Landcare Victoria Incorporated

Landcare Victoria Inc. is the independent representative body for Landcare in Victoria and exists to secure increased recognition, resourcing and support for Landcare. We serve the broader Landcare community within Victoria and we represent paid members.

Victoria's Peak Body for Landcare

Landcare Victoria Inc. (LVI) is the result of the merger in April 2017 of the Farm Tree and Landcare Association and the Victorian Landcare Council. It is the State Peak Body for Landcare, incorporating the administration, systems and services of both organisations under one banner.

LVI's commitment to Victorian Landcare groups:

  • We advocate, together with our partners, for recognition, resourcing and support to ensure Landcare action on the ground
  • We provide incorporation protection, insurance cover, grant support, advice and training to groups

LVI achieves this by:

  • fostering community learning and action
  • participating in government policy development
  • facilitating collaboration between Landcare, Catchment Management Authorities and local and state Government
  • representing Victorian Landcare nationally via its membership of the National Landcare Network
  • supporting members and member groups in activities which promote sustainable land and water management practices
