Scott Hanson, Director General, NSW Department of Primary Industries, Simon Rowe Dep Chair Fullerton Hadley Landcare and Dep Chair NSW Fish Habitat Partnership, the Hon Katrina Hodgkinson MP, Member for Cootamundra and Chair Parliamentary Friends of Landcare. NATURAL resource management issues of the Fullerton/Hadley region were taken to NSW Parliament House last week as Simon Rowe (Dep Chair Fullerton Hadley Landcare) attended ‘Trees in the House’.

On May 10 Landcare leaders gathered at Parliament House at the ‘Trees in the House’ function hosted by the cross-party NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare to discuss the important work Landcare does for the benefit of agriculture, conservation and local communities.

The event was held in partnership with Landcare NSW.

Simon said, “The opportunity to provide exposure to so many influential politicians and departmental staff around our local group’s efforts was great.

“If you are a politician and not in touch with what your local Landcare community do I’d encourage you to find out”.

The Minister for Agriculture Hon. Niall Blair MLC informed the Legislative Council how pleasing it was to see the Local Landcare Coordinator program progressing well as it renews the government-community relationship and unlocks the full potential of the thousands of volunteers in the Landcare network.

Recently appointed Landcare Coordinator positions, funded under the NSW Government’s $15m Landcare Policy 2015-2019, have been a catalyst for renewed activity – leveraging additional funding and bringing volunteers back into Landcare.

The strengthened network of Local Landcare Coordinators is able to respond to local priorities as well as state policies, grant programs and partnership opportunities.

For example, the recently released biodiversity reforms mean Government must engage with the private landholders who are responsible for more than 70 percent of land in NSW.

Landcare has the on ground networks and connections.

The Government’s Landcare policy 2015-2019 is being delivered through a partnership between Landcare NSW and Local Land Services.

The NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare (PFL) is a cross-party group of NSW Members of Parliament who have a common interest in demonstrating support for the goals of Landcare.

The Fullerton Hadley Landcare area contains 80 landholders of which 70% reside outside of the district. Fullertonhadleylancare.org备案老域名 New members welcome. [email protected]备案老域名

Cabonne councillor Janelle Culverson is the latest candidate to put her hand up to contest the state seat of Orange after Mr Gee won National Party preselection for the federal seat of Calare.

Mrs Culverson will contest the seat as a National Party member and will compete in a National Party preselection against Orange councillor Scott Munro, who is also running the seat of Orange.

“I see the position as one where you are there to represent the people, listen to them and communicate what they are saying and to fight for them,” Mrs Culverson said.

Mrs Culverson was elected as a Cabonne councillor eight years ago, she is married, has three children and runs a civil construction and agricultural service business.

She says has had diverse experiences in life, which give her an advantage when it comes to representing the people of the electorate.

“I have insights in to many of the issues affecting people’s lives… for example issues affecting families, young people and working women,” Mrs Culverson said.

“I am committed to seeing our community prosper and grow, not only for us now, but so our children have the choice of enjoying a rural lifestyle that is not less than our metropolitan counterparts in opportunity and prosperity,” she said.

The date of the Orange by-election has not been announced and Mr Gee has indicated he intends to stay on as local state member until June 9.
