Landcare

Harcourt Valley Landcare Group is an active community group of volunteers of all ages dedicated to preserving and revitalizing our valley environment, See Events page on this website for the group’s activities. There are lots of opportunities to get your hands dirty while cleaning up the local environment. There is an activity planned for the last Sunday of each month. We said we are an active group!! New members are welcome! Why not join us and make like-minded friends. Harcourt Valley Landcare is affiliated with Farm Tree and Landcare Association of Victoria. FTLA is the state-wide ‘umbrella group’ for all Landcare groups. We are also enthusiastic supporters of Connecting Country, a Castlemaine-based organisation  which provides leadership and advice on all sorts of environmental projects.
