Andrew’s award is recognition for how he has created a successful, sustainable, small acreage farming enterprise using permaculture and regenerative farming principles that hydrate the landscape and enhance the soil’s capacity to sustain life.

Robyn’s award recognises her dedication, commitment and leadership in the Landcare movement at local, regional and state levels for more than 25 years.

Karuah Catchment Landcare received the Community Group Award based on their success delivering the Branch Wetlands Regeneration Project which has had a major impact on improving water quality and nutrients in the Karuah Estuary.

The project was a true partnership of grassroots Landcare, Mid Coast Council, Local Land Services, Landcare Australia and the University of Newcastle.

These award winners have also been nominated through to the State awards, which will be decided at the 2022 Landcare NSW and Local Land Services State Conference in Tweed Heads.

Good luck to our local Landcare champions!
