Starting a Landcare Initiative

Landcare starts with you!

Whether you are an extension officer, community organizer, a farmer facilitator or a local government unit (LGU) official, landcare starts with you understanding what it is about and determining that it can work for you.

Seven steps to getting LANDCARE started:

  2. Get to know the local situation
  3. Gain broad agreement and support from the stakeholders
  4. Contact farmers leaders and arrange a process for engaging farmers
  5. Orientate farmers to the program and form landcare groups
  6. Identify and plan landcare group activities
  7. Implement landcare group activities
