Victorian Landcare Plan

Landcare Victoria is committed to developing a plan for Victorian community landcare that will establish directions for our movement over the next decade and beyond.  This is the first time a movement–wide strategic plan has been attempted using a community–driven consultative approach. 

Due for completion in June 2023, the plan will be developed in two broad phases – an initial consultation phase (complete) and the plan development phase over the next six months (to early 2023).

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities - December 2022

Building on our engagement with the landcare community and partners in early 2022, further engagement opportunities are being held in early December.

This stage of engagement will include a series of online workshops to gather input into potential solutions and ways forward for the challenges and opportunities identified in the 2022 Landcare Plan Engagement Findings Report (see below).

Landcare Members Workshop - Tuesday, 6 December
Landcare Facilitator, Coordinator and Project Staff Workshop - Wednesday, 7 December
Landcare Partner Workshop - Thursday, 8 December
Emerging Landcare Leaders Workshop - Friday, 9 December

To find out more, or register for one of these workshops, please visit our Events page.

Further engagement opportunities will include:

Mid-February 2023: Strategic direction workshops and online survey
April 2023: Draft strategy released for comment, online survey, and feedback workshops

Release of Engagement Findings Report - June 2022

Conducted between February and May 2022 – via workshops, interviews and an online survey – a number of important themes and recommendations emerged from the consultation phase:

Raise the profile of landcare 
Improve advocacy for landcare 
Increase and improve funding for landcare 
Build the capacity of landcare 
Build Traditional Owner Partnerships

This phase was supported by the Victorian Government and involved a wide cross section of the Landcare movement and partners and is intended to help frame the plan development phase

The landcare movement clearly wants to see a more equal and honest relationship between government and the community around addressing the various crises we face (such as adapting to climate change, addressing biodiversity decline and sustainable farming), and greater support for community landcare to help lead our more effective collective response.

How you can get involved

  • Read and reflect on the Engagement Findings Report

  • Discuss the past and future of landcare at your group and network level. And for those who already have a local vision or strategy, we’d like you to especially reflect on:
    • what has been working?
    • what hasn’t been working?
    • what support you need to improve your vision?
    • what is needed to make your vision a reality this decade?

  • Participate in the Landcare Victoria Members Council planning workshops

  • Watch for invitations to other workshops in your region or online

  • Contact Landcare Victoria staff and your regional board representative to participate in the dialogue about our future
