At Western Murray Land Improvement Group our purpose is to enrich our community through the power of innovative thinking and knowledge sharing.
We are a not-for-profit and registered charity organisation based in Barham, NSW on Barapa Barapa land. We are a Landcare host organisation and together with four other groups form the Murray Landcare Collective.
We were established in 2003 by a group of passionate regional producers and community members.
Today we are governed by a 10-member board with a diverse skillset that represent local community needs.
We work across the pillars of:
We engage in projects that build on our community’s resilience, and their capacity to harness and utilise their skills and knowledge.
We facilitate engagement by bringing together community members with other stakeholders such as government agencies, elected representatives and industry groups and act as a conduit between parties for information exchange and project development where common interests converge.
Over the past 20 years we have adapted to continuous changing conditions such as climate change and adverse events such as flood and drought to increase positive outcomes for our communities.
We work closely with our First Nations People to achieve beneficial outcomes for all community, acknowledging that their rich knowledge and understanding of the land that we work and live on is a privilege to share in.
We also provide governance, administration support, and collaboration opportunities with several groups including Landcare, producer, and landholder groups.
