Noosa & District Landcare is a dynamic and proactive organisation committed to achieving long term environmental outcomes.
Kylie and Joel Stephen at Valdora
“We have been working in partnership with Noosa Landcare to revegetate our block for almost 12 months now. In that time, we have been impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of all of the Noosa Landcare team who continue to provide us with great advice on what plants are most suitable for our block and how to help them thrive. The team work seamlessly together from Brent in projects coordinating and planning, to the nursery team making sure that the plant selections are the best choices and ready on time, to Ered on site who always arrives with a smile and friendly advice. The on-site team work hard to complete what is planned each visit, and do so with a smile and a laugh – they really enjoy what they do. I’m continually impressed that when we see them the next time they will ask how their advice went, or share more knowledge based on a previous conversation. They are always going above and beyond to help us with what we have asked and more. We look forward to continuing to work with the team to maintain the couple of thousand plants that have now established themselves on our block.”
“Just to say thank you to Ered and Rohan for their great work last Friday, they were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They passed on lots of information about weed control, use of different tools, methods and strategies for weed removal that minimises soil erosion. Spending time with them has given me confidence that with a good strategy, I can manage the weed infestation.”
Mick de Groot and Nataschja Budel
“Just a quick message to thank both Kyle & Ryan – They were amazing!
We had a very enjoyable but especially educational day. Our goal was to learn more of the most common weeds and most common natives/pioneers and we did.
We feel much better equipped to manage our property than before their visit!
Thanks to Landcare for providing the excellent staff, and thanks to Noosa council for the grant!”
Jamie Bell – Property Owner – Gold Member
“Your visit was incredibly helpful and actually inspiring. You can be sure I will be nurturing the natives that I now have a chance of recognising, and attacking the weeds. After you left it was a bonus to open the membership package you brought, full of useful things especially the Mangroves to Mountains book. Due mainly to your visit I think I have already done very well from my gold membership even before I stock up on more discounted tube stock from the Pomona nursery.”
Chris Ewing – Senior Consultant CO2 Australia
“Noosa and District Landcare Group is working with CO2 Australia to deliver a project in the lower Kin Kin Creek catchment involving planting of 300,000 trees. NDLG has done an outstanding job of ensuring high quality, locally sourced tree stock is planted within specification to meet stringent survival targets all within very short periods. CO2 Australia looks forward to continuing to work closely with NDLG on future equally successful projects.”
Mark Haas and Carol Dunstan
Property owners (custodians) – Small acre farmers
“I have been fortunate to have had the Noosa and District Landcare Group provide environmental activities on my 30 acre property east of Gympie.
The work undertaken was revegetation of a riparian zone along my Tinana creek frontage and enrichment plantings for koala habitat on boundaries linking wildlife corridors.
Over the duration of the activities all participants were friendly and enthusiastic. They showed respect for the land and the people who currently have custodianship of that land (ie me).
The successful strike rate of new plantings was very high and I was always kept well informed during phases of the projects.
My 30 acres is now well on its way to being a self- sustaining contributor to the environmental health and well-being of the creek and the flora and fauna that are being attracted to it.”
Ian Last – Science Manager, HQ Plantations Pty Ltd
“HQPlantations, Queensland’s largest plantation forestry company, is currently implementing several riparian revegetation projects along Tinana Creek and its tributaries. Collectively, the projects cover over 35 hectares, requiring over 35,000 seedlings.
The friendly, professional team at Noosa and District Landcare have been a great help to HQPlantations, providing many excellent quality seedlings throughout the year across a wide range of local species and provenances. Their experienced field crews provided vital support during the peak season including pre-plant spray work and planting, helping us to hit our targets on time.
I recently visited several of the sites and am pleased to report that over 95% of the seedlings have survived and are thriving.”
Bruce and Jeannette Glasby
“As Farmers we have been working towards having our cattle off our creeks. With Noosa Landscare`s help we have been
able to achieve that goal with fencing most of our creek and planting riparian zone with trees. Landcare has been so organised
and professional with their planning and working with us as we work our property. They took care of everything and are most
helpful and friendly. We could not have achieved this without them. We highly recommend their work.”
