August 3 - 9 is Landcare Week 2020.
"The National Landcare program is a $1 billion federal government commitment to natural resource management," a spokesperson for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management Minister David Littleproud said.
"Improving the resilience and productive capacity of our soils, water and vegetation helps underpin successful primary industries and regional communities.
"Landcare's role in the Australian community has never been more important, with our worldwide clean green reputation placing agriculture at the heart of our COVID-19 recovery.
Minister Littleproud said the Landcare movement uniteed farming communities across all commodities and regions in conserving, protecting, and maintaining healthy lands and waters.
"This year we're encouraging more communities to get involved in the care and management of their local environment," he said.
"Landcare Week is also an opportunity to remind ourselves that we farm more sustainably, efficiently and ethically than just about any country on earth.
"This week is also a chance to acknowledge and celebrate the thousands of people who get involved with Landcare every year and work hard to make our country a better place.
"As a result of programs such as Landcare, Australia's clean green image is paying off, helping us send our high-quality, safe and premium food all over the planet.
"I thank Landcare Australia, the National Landcare Network, local Landcare groups, NRM regional bodies and farming groups for their commitment, dedication and hard work to make Landcare the success that it is - we simply couldn't do this without you." Minister Littleproud said.
