How you can help
Landcare provides three types of support to assist members achieve their landscape goals, financial, people and knowledge. You can help:
Public funds are only used to assist projects that provide a public benefit, for example waterway protection, salinity control or biodivdersity plantings. Where the primary benefit of the project is for the landholder themselves, they bear the full financial cost associated with the project. We provide three avenues for you to support Landcare financially:
- Project Fund. Annual contributions are utilized each year for project works
- Carbon Offset. A full carbon offset can be provided for a business or an individual. Such offsets need individual negotiation to achieve, because of their high compliance cost. A tax deductible donation, directed through the project fund can directly mitigate your carbon footprint on either and annual or perpetual basis.
- Capital Fund. The Foundation can accept capital donations where the corpus is preserved and the annual income is directed to activities through the project fund.
People resources are only used to assist projects that provide a public benefit, for example waterway protection, salinity control or biodivdersity plantings. Where the primary benefit of the project is for the landholder themselves, they bear the full cost associated with the project.
- Projects. We can use your time to assist us with project work. This may involve planting, threat control, fencing or other similar work.
- Brokerage. As we landcarers have our own farming enterprises to run we really appreciate help to organize our landcare activities, both project based and information exchange events.
- Knowledge. Knowledge is critical to our goals and to good decision making. There is much that will help us through monitoring water, soils, flora and fauna, both in areas where we have done work as well as potential project sites.
Landcare operates in an “action learning” framework, meaning we need a regular flow of information to inform and update our proposed actions. Supporting us to bring that knowledge to our community by linking us to it is a critical way we improve what we do.
