Recruiting new members to Landcare has always been a challenge. Middle Yarra Landcare Network have embraced this challenge and take recruitment a step further by hosting a ‘walk and talk’ with fresh signups. A longer term Network or Group member will meet with the new member/s and hike through the project sites discussing safety and OH+S considerations and associated aspects of the project.
The walk showcases previous works and describes the vision the group have for the landscape, including future works. Arthur Murchow says:
“We have received some really positive feedback from new members on this initiative …. it is welcoming and inclusive but also provides a general awareness of the local issues …. especially important if these people have just moved into the area”.
