Govinda Valley Landcare Group
What Is Landcare?
Landcare is a non-governmental community movement consisting of over 5,400 groups across the country that aim to promote sustainability and care for the environment. The initiative brings people together to discuss issues in the local area and to work together to develop and implement practical and effective solutions.
What Do We Do?
Govinda Valley has its own Landcare Group that seeks to tackle environmental problems in the Otford area. In particular, the local bush is threatened by invasive weed species that degrade the native flora and fauna. To combat this, we undertake practical work and remove these damaging weeds, re-plant endemic species and conduct species surveys.
How Can You Get Involved?
You can take small, simple steps in your garden to help care for our native bush, such as removing invasive species, minimising pesticide use and avoiding dumping garden waste in the bush.
If you’d like to take part in our Landcare group then we’d be delighted to hear from you. The group meets the first Tuesday of the month between 9am - 12pm. Bring a hat, gloves, water, insect repellent and covered boots. Lunch is included.
