We were VERY pleased to learn of the pledge of $100 million dollars to Landcare as part of the deal in passing the “Backpacker Tax”. As with all announcements like this the devil is in the detail and it is not clear yet how this money will be distributed – through government programs such as the National Landcare Program, direct to Landcare groups or through other organisations.
Holbrook Landcare Network continues to offer good value for money on investment and has excellent reputation in the delivery of projects. We hope to be able to access this funding for on-ground works in the future. Dale is part of the conversations at state level through his position on the executive of Landcare NSW and will keep us posted.
