Victorian Local Landcare Facilitators Initiative (VLLFI)

In 2011, BLG were fortunate to secure one of 60 Landcare facilitator funded positions, through the Victorian Local Landcare Facilitators Initiative (VLLFI)

The initiative recognizes the important contribution professional Landcare facilitators can make in supporting the work of volunteer based networks and Landcare groups.

This state government funding, managed by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, will provide the support of a Landcare facilitator to the BLG until June 2015.

The role of the Bellarine Landcare Facilitator is to support the BLG in providing on ground project support, as well as community engagement events ie. community planting days, information session and workshops. Our Landcare Facilitator is currently Sophie Small.
