LLCI partners with Rural Mental Health Program
The NSW Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative has partnered with the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program to help make sure that Landcare can be about people care as well!
Landcare is about as closely linked with "peoplecare" as anything could be and with that comes exposure to mental health issues.
Local coordinators, facilitators, committees - almost everyone involved in Landcare is likely to be exposed to mental health issues either themselves or with someone they know or work with. The LLCI and Rural Adversity Mental Health Program partnership is one step being put in place to help Landcarers in rural communities get access to the support and training they might need to manage any mental health issues.

Online Library of restoration videos available
RegenTV is AABR’s growing online library of restoration videos from forums and field days, aligned to the National Restoration Standards. Along with the videos there are learning resources for students and life-long learners.
RegenTV allows for the sharing of current thinking, in a rapidly growing field, in a climate changing world.
The regenTV project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
Groups "Tell their Stories"
Under the Local Landcare Coordinator initiative, one of the products has been the development of a case study template that allows groups to “tell their story”. The feature is available for all groups who have a Gateway page – simply log in and choose add new case study. It’s a great way to produce a summary report on any activity or project your group has done – it is visible as a web page view, or can be downloaded into a PDF format that can be used as a flyer, inserted in a report, or even blown up for use as a poster.
In completing case studies you are letting everyone know the great range of things that groups do – and are adding to an online library of activities that allows groups and individuals to Share Learn and Connect. We do hope you take the opportunity to tell your story by submitting a case study or two. Go to http://www.landcare.nsw.gov.au/help/how-to/case-studies-on-the-gateway for instructions, and contact your local Landcare Coordinator who can help. When you submit your case study it will be reviewed and once endorsed will be visible. Check out the case studies that have been completed so far.
