The Western Landcare NSW Inc. Steering Committee aims to fulfil its purpose by encouraging Landcare and other producer groups to undertake projects and implement management strategies that improve the quality of our soils, water and vegetation. The ultimate aim for the WLNSW Steering Committee is to enable an increase in biodiversity whilst sustaining agricultural production for current and future generations.

Western Landcare NSW Inc. supports a number of Natural Resource Management groups and whole communities in the Western Region to enhance sustainable agricultural outcomes.

In the Western Region the Landcare approach comprises several ideals:

  • a philosophy influencing the way people live in the landscape while caring for the land
  • local community action putting this philosophy into practice
  • a range of knowledge including generation sharing, local/state/national group support mechanisms
  • facilitators/coordinators
  • government and non-government programs and partnerships
