NZ Landcare Trust works with more than 150 landcare groups on a broad range of landcare projects. In this section of the website we feature the work of some of these committed groups, celebrating their success - champions of 'action on the ground'.
We are planning to expand this part of the website... to make it more useful to Landcare and Community Groups. Ideas include a series of practical movie clips providing useful tips on various aspects of biodiversity enhancement work called 'online workshops'. We are also planning to include clear guidance on how to set up a Landcare Group and the benefits of doing so.
Why not let us know what you would like to see? Send your thoughts and ideas to email@example.com
