About Us

The Inglewood & Texas Landcare Association Inc was originally initiated by local landholders of the former Inglewood Shire in 1984. The group was originally known as the Inglewood Shire Land Management Group and changed it's name to the Inglewood Shire Landcare Group Inc. in the early nineties up until the end of 2008, when the name of the group changed to the Inglewood & Texas Landcare Association. The last name change was due to 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 Inglewood & Texas Landcare office is located in the QGAP office in the town of Inglewood.
