who we are
Richmond Landcare Incorporated
Richmond Landcare Incorporated (RLI) was established in 1998 to provide support for Landcare and sustainable agriculture across the Richmond River catchment. Its mission includes helping to form new groups, providing support for existing ones, and facilitating projects that contribute to natural resource management and sustainable agriculture.
Today, RLI remains a dedicated supporter of Landcare and the wider community, partnering with local environmental organizations and government agencies in the Richmond catchment to promote environmental conservation and sustainable practices.
We recognise that we live and work in a region that is unique in its biodiversity and we work to protect and enhance that biodiversity among all landowners. For more information on RLI go to the links listed below:
Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
Richmond Landcare is committed to building respectful relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, organisations and stakeholders. We are proud to have our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) endorsed, which outlines our commitment to increasing cultural awareness and knowledge, promoting engagement strategies and building collaborative partnerships.
Our goal is to establish strong partnerships with the Traditional Owners of the Country on which we work and incorporate their knowledge of Country, including plant names, their uses and Aboriginal Land Management practices into our projects.

Back in 2009 Lyn was Richmond Landcare’s part-time School’s Officer, working on various environmental projects with many schools in the Richmond Catchment. She also worked part-time for The Australian Native Bee Company, educating schools and the community on the importance of Australian Native Bees. Now in retirement, Lyn is currently Treasurer of Richmond Landcare representing Bagot Park Landcare, an Executive member of North Coast Regional Landcare and a Director and Secretary of Landcare NSW. Some of her passions are, her grandchildren, Australian Native Bees, gardening and working with Steve, her husband, restoring their 110-acres (44 hectare) property at Swan Bay. Their farm was previously a sugarcane farm; slowly the swamps are rejuvenating, and they are now planting thousands of trees on the farm. She happily reports that the birds and ‘the bees’ are returning. When asked about her favourite hat and plant, she replied, “I rotate my favourite caps between my RLI cap, my NCRLN cap, and of course my bee veil hat. My favourite plant is the Blue Tongue, Melastoma affine, a favourite of Blue Banded Bees.”
Alana moved to the Northern Rivers in 2021, relocating from a tiny terrace in the middle of Sydney to a 10-acre property up in some of the last remaining Big Scrub Rainforest. She has been a member of Whian Whian Landcare for the last few years and is most interested in learning about (and planting!) local rainforest trees and plants, and landslip remeditation. A long-term practitioner of yoga and movement practices across a variety of traditions, Alana has a particular interest in combining these teachings with an awareness of the land, the turning of the seasons and the impact this has on all aspects of our lives. She teaches yoga locally and works as an English language teacher at Southern Cross University, bringing sustainability and landcare values into her various classrooms in whatever way she can. Alana’s favourite plant is a three-way tie between the lilly pilly, grevillea, and red flowering gum.
