We aim to "contribute to a viable, capable and adaptable community by promoting sustainable farm and land management practices that deliver improved agricultural productivity, sustainability and ecosystem services"
Who are we?
Western Murray Land Improvement Group is an incorporated not-for-profit group based in Barham NSW. We are located beside the Murray River and surrounded by unique natural bushland environment. We were established in 2003, by a group of local landholders and stakeholders who recognised the importance of sustainable agriculture practices with a focus on local Landcare and management systems.
Today, we have 10 staff members, a committee of 12 members, and are supported by over 150 members in the local area. As a Landcare group we promote sustainable agriculture and Natural Resource Management. We also respond to community needs, recognising the unique challenges that our community of local landholders and farmers face.
What do we do?
Our projects range from capacity building workshops to promoting productivity and sustainable agricultural practices and on-farm best practice. We advocate for our community and help empower them to thrive. We assist in applying for funding that is of benefit to the whole community.
We have a proud record of delivering applied research, development and extension projects to our community. We partner with local government, industry groups, state and federal agencies to provide community networking opportunities and develop projects which will benefit the local region.
