We acknowledge the Peramangk and Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the region where we live and work, and respect their connection to Country.

The Kersbrook Landcare Group (KLG) is a community run incorporated body. A not for profit organisation was formed in 1997 by residents concerned about agricultural and environmental issues in the Kersbrook region. The group currently has a strong interest in local biodiversity and provides information and support to local residents in the form of information evenings and working bees. The Landcare Group manages a locally indigenous plant nursery located at the South Para SA Water reservoir site where volunteers assist in the production of approximately 50,000 plants per annum. Over 260 species are grown. Many of these quality but low cost plants are used for revegetation purposes, but they are also for sale to the general public at our winter/ spring plant sales. These plants are not available for retail or other onselling.

Our new book released in 2017 ‘Focus on Flora’ has been written to enable the general public to easily identify and gain a better understanding and appreciation of the Adelaide Hills plants.

We aim to encourage and promote community interest in enhancing biodiversity within the region and to be proactive ensuring threats to the environment are addressed. We help to care for two local bushcare sites near Kersbrook and have a strong interest in the management of Hale Conservation Park at Williamstown.

The group aims to do a working/social trip each year. In the past we have visited Meldanda and Gluepot

KLG has recently had numerous enquiries about suitable trees species for koalas

Working with our group is satisfying, educational, safe, and most importantly, A HAPPY experience! Come and join us.
