Targeted Landcare 2014


Northern Landcare Support Services in partnership with Tweed Landcare Inc, Brunswick Valley Inc and Richmond Landcare Inc. are delivering a Targeted Landcare Program funded by North Coast Local Land Services. The program is working on seven small projects across the Northern Socio-Ecological Landscape addressing key areas of the Northern Rivers Catchment Action Plan 2013-23 and the North Coast Local Land Services Strategic Plan for 2014, including sustainable and productive agriculture and healthy, productive and resilient natural systems and enhancing community capacity to manage agricultural and natural systems using best practice.


Projects include trialling cover crops and ground covers on six horticultural properties, removing Bitou Bush from the cliffs in the Dirawong Reserve and Evans Head Coastal Reserve, protecting Skinners Reserve by controlling environmental and Weeds of National Significance and riparian restoration works including weed control and planting at Teven and Ocean Shores.


Tara Patel from Northern Landcare Support Services said “it is great to see North Coast Local Land Services supporting these small Landcare focussed projects and hopefully this will continue to happen in the coming years”.
