Covid updates for Landcare

The Scoop

The NSW Government has further eased certain restrictions from 1 July.  What does this mean for Landcare groups?

Under the new guidelines, 

Public gatherings of up to 20 people are now permitted with restrictions for Outdoor venues (working in the bush or on your project site) and Community Centres or halls (running educational workshops).

This is exciting news for Landcarers, allowing us to get back out there and resume some of our project activities.  

Given this, We strongly recommend all Landcare groups download and complete the COVID-19 Safety Plan for your workplaces (offices, events, working bee site, etc) and register as a safe work place:

  1. Download and complete the COVID-19 Safety Plan
    1. Complete the list with staff, volunteers before going to the next step
  2. Register at
  3. Display this on all sites (website, social media, etc).

All volunteer Landcare activities must be conducted in accordance with current legal requirements in place in NSW. Rules regarding gatherings and movement outside of home have changed and are likely to continue to change. It is up to you and your group to ensure you act in accordance with these requirements and check with your insurance provider before undertaking activities.
