Groups caring for specific sites on the Central Coast can be found on Council's interactive map.

Links to most NSW Landcare and related groups can be accessed through the NSW Landcare Gateway. This is a user-editable platform operated by the NSW Government.

Make your own Landcare website 

This website was begun with little more expertise than being able to do word-processing -  this Google site can show you how. In addition, Tumbi Wetlands Site can help you with the nuts and bolts of HTML code.

Making a garden on your water tank

This site is dedicated to how to use native plants to make plastic or concrete water tanks into mini wall and roof gardens, without compromising its water storage role.

Other publications by me, Brian Patterson, can be found here.
