Kersbrook Landcare Group

The Kersbrook Landcare Group (KLG) is a community run incorporated body. A not for profit organisation was formed in 1997 by residents concerned about agricultural and environmental issues in the Kersbrook region. The Landcare Group manages a locally native plant nursery located at the South Para Reservoir (SAW site) where volunteers assist in the production of up to 100,000 plants per annum. Over 260 species are grown. Many of these quality but low cost plants are pre-ordered for revegetation purposes, but they are also for sale to the general public at our winter plant sales. Our book released in 2017 ‘Focus on Flora’ has been written to enable the general public to easily identify and gain a better understanding and appreciation of the Adelaide Hills plants. We are currently working on a second edition. We aim to encourage and promote community interest in enhancing biodiversity within the region and to be proactive ensuring threats to the environment are addressed. We help to care for two local bushcare sites near Kersbrook and have a strong interest in the management of Hale Conservation Park at Williamstown. The group aims to do a working/social trip each year. In the past we have visited Meldanda, Gluepot, Innes National Park and Mount Remarkable.
