What can you buy for $10 these days, a dvd rental that you need to return, a lunch time special that’s eaten in 30 minutes, but what can you buy for $10 that will last a lifetime?
Your local Landcare Network, Granite Borders Landcare (GBLC) have been in operation for 21years this year, and in celebration of this milestone are offering any member of the Tenterfield Shire Council Local Government area, as well as community members north of the border up to Glen Aplin, QLD a “once off – lifetime membership” for only $10!
Any community member is welcome to join Granite Borders Landcare Committee Inc. and now Membership costs $10 per person or family/entity. This is a “once only” payment and entitles you to a “lifetime” of membership with your local Landcare network.
Member benefits include receiving our seasonal newsletter, generous member discounts for GBLC events and you are placed on our alert database for early-bird information for funding, workshops and other opportunities. The only catch is that you must be able to supply a valid email address. This is necessary to reduce the quantity of paper being wasted within the office, your office and wider community. In the rare instance that you do not have ready access to an email address, please contact the staff at the GBLC office on 0267 363 500 to make other arrangements.
GBLC still have Group memberships for our affiliated groups available, currently $60 per group. This goes towards covering some of the insurance, audit and management costs of the individual Landcare Groups.
The Landcare ethos has been around for 25 years and remains strong within our local communities. As with all interest groups, times are changing and our focus is no longer primarily environmental issues, we are now starting to encourage and broaden our interests to include wider community involvement. This was shown in the success of our “Pasta & Gnocchi Making” Workshops held back in July 2015.
So please consider taking this opportunity to join up to our locally grown organisation. Membership forms are available online at graniteborderslandcare.com.au; from our Martin Street, Tenterfield Office; by telephoning 0267 363 500 or by email email@example.com.
