    We are primarily a group of residents and landholders from within the Milton Area. We formed in March 1998 to ensure that we have a voice in other forums, to provide an Incorporated body through which other Landcare groups in our area could shelter, to improve the sustainability of our farms and other ventures within our catchment and to use our experiences to help educate others, primarily through group activities, educational products and this web site.

    We received our Incorporation papers on the 28th October 1998. We adopted national Landcare and TCM principals as our incorporated aims. We are currently members of the Shoalhaven Landcare Inc, our district Landcare Group, and South East Landcare Inc., our regional body. Strong partnerships have also been formed with Ulladulla Lands Council, Shoalhaven City Council, Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority, South Coast Rural Protection Board, NSW National Parks and Wildlife (DECC), schools - both primary and secondary public and private, Greening Australia Ltd.

    Our activities are centred around our Native Plant Nursery, located in the council compound - Deering St, Ulladulla, opened every Tuesday and Wednesday each week. Here volunteers propogate plants from stock collected locally that are used to support projects on local farms, national parks, council and other reserves as well as local gardens. We operate a provenence system with our stock.

    We have partnered 5 Green Corps teams, engaged with numerous CVA teams and organise own own working bees to achieve successful outcomes for the many projects we engaged in.
