Dear Landcarers,

This week, Susan Campbell from the FTLA Committee of Management has been volunteering in the office of Cathy McGowan MP to assist in drafting submissions on Landcare.

Cathy spoke in Parliament yesterday to discuss the 25th anniversary of Landcare and to also debate the changes in Landcare funding announced in the 2014-15 budget.

Please click on the following link to review the full debate: http://www.cathymcgowan.com.au/hansard_june_2_landcare_25th_anniversary_and_govt_funding.

“Communities know what is best for the land. Ask them what needs to be done. Involve them in the process. Make sure that all interested community groups and stakeholders are involved in the big changes that the government is planning.”

Here is an opportunity for Landcarers to have direct input into areas of concern by providing their feedback through to Cathy’s office and the more people that provide feedback, the more this assists her in Parliament.

Feedback can be provided either directly through to Cathy’s office at tasman.vaughan@aph.gov.au or through the FTLA on 03 9207 5527 or at ftla@vff.org.au.
