In 2012, the Yarra Ranges Landcare Network initiated ‘Landcare for Singles’ .. a ground breaking effort to encourage young people to participate in Landcare activities. With exceptional marketing and publicity, the events gained momentum and large crowds of ‘singles’ and even ‘not singles’ converged on planting sites across the Yarra Ranges.
The events became so successful that the Network broadened the scope of the target audience to include ‘Landcare for single parents’ which also proved successful, particularly with the support of child minding Landcare helpers (with working with children accreditation and child minding experience).
