A healthy Lower Blackwood Catchment starts with

Sustainable Agriculture

The Lower Blackwood LCDC works to promote a sustainable agriculture community in the Blackwood region, where sustainability is measured in economic, social and environmental terms.

Located in the southwest corner of Western Australia, our catchment is high in biodiversity, has high value assets and productive agricultural land. We aim to protect and conserve this special environment in the South West by taking a whole of landscape and community approach.

We work with farmers, land managers, local government, business and traditional owners to promote sustainable & productive agriculture, in a healthy & vibrant community.

We acknowledge that our Lower Blackwood catchment and the work we do falls within Wadandi and Pibulmen Boodja, in which our streams and tributaries flow to join the great Goorbilyup, the Blackwood River. We recognise and respect that Wadandi & Pibulmen ancestors and their descendants are the traditional custodians of this country, and that they have a long and continuing connection to this land.
