An afternoon of celebration at Mannafest Cafe, High St Yea was a lovely way to end the phography competition. Over 20 entries were received throughout the previous week from locals and from further afield. It was quite obvious that Landcare means many different things to different people. A strong focus was on local fauna with photographs of Sugar-gliders, possums, cockatoos, koalas, echidnas, dragonflies, frogs and more! The other strong theme was people working together. Other themes included landscapes, plantings, flora and farming.
When answering the question “What does Landcare mean to you?” entrants responses included;
“Fresh air, interaction with environment, connection with people and land”
“Regenerative, sustainable, biological, smart farming that invigorates agricultural land, our environment and community”
“Landcare is looking after the bush and creating habitat for animals”
“Caring for the beautiful things all around us”
“Helping to give back to the land just a little of whatwe have taken away”.
Thank you to all entrants for sharing what Landcare means to you!
