The grassroots of Tweed Landcare are the hundreds of Care group volunteers undertaking bush regeneration (weed control) and planting native trees across the Tweed.
There are more than 20 Care groups working to restore approximately 200 hectares of bushland along creeks and rivers, wetlands, hill tops and coastal dunes.
Most Care groups are restoring Council managed land but we also have a few working on private properties.
Some groups meet several times a week while others meet once a month.
Keen to get some dirt on your shirt?
All of the Care groups would welcome new volunteers.
If you would like to get involved look at the list of local Care groups to find the one nearest you (or your favourite spot) or one that meets at time that suits you then contact the volunteer group coordinator.
There are groups meeting on weekdays and weekends in all parts of the Tweed so get out there!
