Landcare

Victorian Landcare Facilitator Program (VLFP)

The Victorian Landcare program is the program that supports Landcare in Victoria through funding received from the State Government. This funding is managed through the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

The Victorian Landcare Facilitator program employs 79 part-time facilitators who are employed directly by the groups and networks.

The facilitators' role is to enable the effective participation of Landcare groups and networks, landholders and the wider community in natural resource management activities that protect, enhance and restore our natural environment, and improve agricultural productivity.

The facilitators have a strong focus on building group and network capacity, rather than dependency, to enable groups to become self supporting.

The Landcare Facilitator runs an EOI program annually for landholders who are interested in improving the natural assets on their land. Landholders who are interested in implementing on ground activities that protect, enhance or restore natural assets and or improve agricultural productivity are encouraged to apply.
