Volunteer Landcare and Grassroots Community groups can apply up to $2,500 for activities that meet an objective of TRLA’s strategic plan with eight successful projects being awarded funds from across the region.

The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.

'Let's Talk About Soil Carbon'. Over two days in Narrabri and Tamworth, 125 landholders from across the North West had the privilege of hearing from innovator, leader, pioneer and change-maker Dr Terry McCosker from RCS and CarbonLink. It was inspiring, challenging but most of all motivating. Along with the science, we also heard about opportunities for carbon projects from CarbonLink, Climate Friendly and South Pole. A big thank you to all our wonderful speakers and to everyone who attended. Proudly supported by Tamworth Regional Landcare Association and Northern Slopes Landcare Association Inc.
