Bob Edgar, first Soil Conservation Authority and then community liaison for the Department of Conservation, Forestry and Lands, is the latest interviewee in our Landcare Voices project, part of celebrating the 30 year history of Landcare with professional oral histories (Warning - files are huge - 70MB)!

Growing up in Chiltern where his father was a beekeeper, Bob’s love of the country took him off on environmental and agricultural study pathways, through which his life’s career would be focussed. From years with the Soil Conservation Authority and as a teacher in Benalla and later seven years at Dookie College, Bob then worked with early landcare in government department positions. He had a particular interest in and given responsibility for the relationships between the Department of Conservation, Forestry and Lands and the community.
