Held in October, the 2023 Tasmanian Community Landcare Conference brought together the grassroots community of Landcarers from across the State. Brighton Council offered two bursaries to community members to attend the three day conference, valued at $500 each. Malcolm McArthur, from Friends of Old Beach Foreshore group, and Michael Casey, a community volunteer and recent graduate of the Centacare Evolve Housing Inspiring Future Leaders 2023 program, each received bursaries. Michael has developed an idea to plant fruit trees in public spaces to provide snacks and be a healthy food source for local kids. Council will be working with him on a pilot site and the Landcare Conference helped Michael become even more inspired.
