Jarrahmond Landcare Group

Jarrahmond Landcare Group

Jarrahmond Landcare Group consists mainly of farming families, with some rural & town dwellers and some absentee landholders. Our motto is: “working for a better environment”. Preserving the aesthetic qualities of Jarrahmond and supporting its agricultural viability are both important goals for us.  We have a strong sense of community and a keen appreciation of Jarrahmond’s history.

Jarrahmond Landcare Group supports the farming community by valuing projects that promote sustainable farming practices, enhance biodiversity and provide exposure to innovation. Soil and water quality, pest plants and animals, revegetation and environmental rehabilitation are all focal points. We provide both a social and a support network for our members and are supportive of working in partnerships for community outcomes.
