About Far East Victoria Landcare

About FEVL

Far East Victoria Landcare (FEVL) plays a unique and important role in supporting the sustainability and well-being of the communities of far east Victoria.

By taking a whole-of-community approach, FEVL not only works to enhance the natural environment and sustainability of agriculture and land use, but also addresses issues affecting the social capacity of communities of the region.

Formed in 2006, FEVL is a network now comprising of seven Landcare groups in far east Gippsland: Cann Valley, Cabbage Tree Creek, Goongerah , Jarrahmond , Marlo, Snowy West  and Wairewa and District; as well as two special interest groups: East Gippsland Bee Care Group and the Far East Sustainable Agriculture Group. The Landcare groups encompass an area ranging from Nowa Nowa to the NSW border and from Goongerah in the north to the coast.

The committee of the FEVL network is responsible for the strategic direction and performance of the organisation. Each member group is eligible to provide 2 representatives to the FEVL Committee of Management which is supported by a small team of staff based in Orbost.

Since its formation, FEVL has been successful in:

  • Securing funding to maintain the employment of Landcare support staff
  • Leveraging investment for the region including resourcing on-ground works
  • Advocating for the needs of the far east Gippsland community
  • Increasing access to a broad spectrum of information and expertise
  • Providing leadership in and innovative approaches to supporting practice change.

Our Vision:

FEVL supports its member groups to be vibrant, innovative and influential in their local communities and is recognised as an organisation that provides strong leadership on environmental health and the agricultural sustainability of far east Victoria.

  • to protect and enhance the natural environment
