About Us

The Inglewood & Texas Landcare Association Inc was originally initiated by local landholders of the former Inglewood Shire in 1986. The group was originally known as the Inglewood Shire Landcare Group Inc up until the end of 2008, when the name of the group changed to the Inglewood & Texas Landcare Association. The name change was due to accommodate for the amalgamation of councils between the Inglewood Shire, Goondiwindi town and Waggamba Shire to form the Goondiwindi Regional Council.

The group is run by a management committee of 6 landholders. The daily running of the organisation is administered by the Landcare Coordinator, who is overseen by the management committee. The Inglewood & Texas Landcare office is located in the QGAP office in the town of Inglewood.
