It is with great disappointment that I must announce that the Management at Gympie & District Landcare Group Inc. have now made the difficult decision that we will not be able to go ahead with the Landcare Festival this year.

With the ever-changing uncertainty around the future of the Covid-19 situation and what type of social distancing guidelines will still be mandatory in September, we have had to make this decision based upon practicality. We have also based this decision upon the consideration of the general health and safety of the members of our local and surrounding communities.

Some fantastic news however – the date of the next Landcare Festival has been set for Saturday 18th September 2021!

We will be holding the 2021 Landcare Festival at Nelson Reserve and this means we will have a much larger and flatter area for our stalls, along with public amenities, more parking and improved disability access (and more sausages 🙂 ) – and with a lot more time to plan, we hope that we can make it bigger and better than ever before!

The whole team looks forward to seeing each and every one of you there next year for a fantastic day, after what has been such a challening and uncertain year in 2020.
