Fiona Harris – Regional Landcare Facilitator (Bourke)

On 1 July Fiona Harris joined the Landcare team at Local Land Services Western Region. After many years teaching and coordinating Outreach programs at TAFE in Western NSW, Fiona joined Local Land Services in January 2014 as the Community Education Officer. For the last twelve months Fiona has been working as part of a nationally funded NRM Planning for Climate Change program which involved writing an addendum to the Western Local Strategic Plan to ensure regional strategies address climate change and the emergence of the carbon farming industry. Fiona is a passionate believer in Landcare and is really excited to be joining the dedicated Landcare team at both Western Landcare and Local Land Services to support a vibrant and engaged Landcare community in Western NSW.

Landcare to me is about utilising a community’s greatest asset, its people and their passion and knowledge to create collective action in the form of agricultural and social sustainability and preserve our natural resources for future generations.


Martha Gouniai – Local Landcare Co-ordinator (Broken Hill)

Landcare to me means local people coming together to create change. It's about the impact each on of us can have on the environment around us and how no one is too small to do something great.
