Kersbrook Landcare Group (KLG) is a community run not for profit organisation which was formed in 1997 by residents concerned about agricultural and environmental issues in the Kersbrook region. The group has a strong interest in local biodiversity and provides information and support to local residents.
KLG’s main project is the Kersbrook Landcare Nursery where volunteers assist in the production of approximately 50,000 local native (>250 species) tube stock each year. Located at the South Para Reservoir SA Water site (Williamstown) most of these plants are grown to order and used for revegetation purposes. They are also available to purchase at their public plant sales during winter.
In 2017 KLG released their book Focus on Flora: Native plants of the Adelaide Hills & Barossa. It was produced by group members with the aim to enable the general public to easily identify and gain a better understanding of the native plants found in the region.
KLG aims to encourage and promote community interest in enhancing biodiversity and to be proactive ensuring threats to the environment are addressed and mitigated. The group helps to care for two local bushcare sites near Kersbrook in the form of monitoring and working bees and has a strong interest in the management of Hale Conservation Park at Williamstown.
