Education and training
Local Land Services encourages people from school students to land managers to town residents to develop skills and knowledge in agriculture, natural resource management and related fields. Our support may be financial, technical or practical.
We do this by:
- initiating and facilitating educational opportunities
- attending and participating in activities organised by other organisations
- funding individuals and groups to attend training and educational events
Local people are supported to learn more through many activities, including:
- conferences: local, national and international
- field days
- public meetings
- agricultural and town shows
- fishing competitions
- photographic competitions
- school visits

Western Division Resilient Landscapes Project
Local Land Services Western Region is partnering with Soils for Life and the Rotary Club of Sydney to deliver the Western Division Resilient Landscapes Project.
The program will provide landholders in the Western Division of NSW with peer-to-peer mentoring for the management of their properties and is designed to lead and facilitate innovative development and change in land management.
The program offers a unique, highly individualised and structured mentoring service to participant landholders, in the application of innovative practices to enterprises, including regenerative land management concepts and maintaining resilience of production in the face of weather and climatic impacts.
Expressions of Interest are currently being sought from land managers who want to make positive change on their property and could benefit from being part of this program.
Mentors in the program have a vast range of experience in land management in our region and are willing to share their knowledge and expertise to assist others to plan and make positive changes. Head to our youtube channel to view short videos of our four mentors or view their profiles: Glenn Humbert, James Leigo, Angus Whyte and Ashley McMurtrie.
To be involved, download the Expressions of Interest and submit your application before 5pm on Friday 10 April.
