Become a Member

We have over 180 members in our Landcare Group and we are proud to be one of the largest active Landcare groups in North East Victoria. The Greta Valley Landcare Group is not just about tree planting – our Landcare group has a strong community focus and we try to run workshops and events that appeal to all members of our local area.

2022, was a busy year for the Group. We hosted a series of workshops focusing on local climate patterns, river management, an introduction to bee keeping and a weed workshop focusing on our worse invaders! Our members also got active with their shovels, helping to plant just over 7000 trees across our local landscape.

In 2023, we have a great range of events planned:

  • Full day Gardens for Wildlife event – planned for May/June
  • Our ongoing project to support the threatened native small fish, Southern Pygmy Perch
  • Ongoing bird monitoring at 10 local sites
  • Revegetation program funding over 11 000 plants at sites in the catchment.

The group also auspices ‘The Greta Bunyip’ newsletter, which promotes local news throughout the catchment.

Members have access to equipment available for loan at subsided rates and advice and information on specific issues through our Project Officer. We can also help you to develop ideas for projects to improve farm productivity and protect and enhance environmental assets on your land.

Membership is just $33 per calendar year per family, which we believe offers fantastic value. Please support your local Landcare Group, as these funds help to pay for our insurance and running costs which are not covered by grants.
