Regional Landcare Facilitator
REGIONAL LANDCARE FACILITATOR
For more than 20 years Bindi Vanzella has actively worked in Natural Resource Management across the Murrumbidgee (including the ACT) and Lachlan River catchments on private and public land. During this time she has delivered incentive funding projects, botanical surveys, vegetation mapping, ecological restoration plans, community facilitation, education and training, social inclusion activities, research and project partnership development.
Bindi’s current work with Greening Australia (of more than 10 years) and previous employment with Cootamundra Landcare and the NSW Dept. of Land & Water Conservation in the Western Riverina has enabled her to experience first-hand the financial and environmental challenges associated with sustainable agriculture and ecological restoration. On her own hazelnut property in Batlow, Bindi (and her husband) have a strong focus on supporting and promoting regional produce. Their farm production works with the land, combining a love for nature and a joy for growing fresh healthy food.
Bindi is looking forward to the challenging role of Riverina Landcare Facilitator.
Bindi strongly believes that Landcare in the Riverina needs to reinvent itself for greater uptake across the region. She foresees excellent opportunities for industry groups, research bodies, government and community groups (farming, cultural and urban) to collaborate more to achieve this. Landcare in the Riverina must include both urban and rural communities for a healthier and more vibrant region that everyone can be proud of.
