The township of Landsborough is made up of Farmers, Viticulturists, Lifestyle landholders and Week Enders. Landsborough Landcare group are a small but active group. They have been involved with many projects over the years. The Landsborough Landcare group were instrumental in forming a partnership with the WCMA, Project Platypus and the Pyrenees Shire to carry out erosion control work on a deep scour in Wattle creek. Drop structures were installed along with gully plug dams, the banks and gullies were battered and revegetated and sown with perennial pastures to assist with stabilisation. The group are currently focusing their attention on stopping the spread of weeds in their Landcare group area. The group believe in empowering their community with knowledge. They have been organising education campaigns, to help Landholders understand the impact weeds can have on their community, both environmentally and financially. The Landsborough Landcare group assist Landholders by renting out the Landcare group’s spray trailer (at a minimal cost) and recommend appropriate chemicals and mix ratios. The group have carried out extensive weed control projects around the township on public and private land. The Landsborough Landcare group are always keen to encourage new members and help the community to keep their Landcare group area sustainable.
