Our Staff

Meet the Greater Sydney Landcare team

As a team, we are committed to our five pillars: flora, fauna, water, soil, and restoration. By focusing on these areas, we aim to make a positive impact on the local ecosystem and contribute to the sustainability of our community.

Local Landcare Coordinators

Local Landcare Coordinators play a vital role in enabling and coordinating Community Landcare groups and other environmental organisations. They empower Landcare groups to achieve their goals in alignment with program objectives and they support participation in Landcare by individuals and sub-groups.

Greater Sydney Landcare currently employs two part-time Local Landcare Coordinators.

Chris McMillan

Local Landcare Coordinator

Chris is a keen member of the Landcare team! He is passionate about people, the environment and social justice. Chris completed a BSc in Environmental Management at Macquarie University and the One Planet MBA at the University of Exeter (UK). He is currently studying a Certificate III in Conservation and Ecosystem Management at TAFE NSW (Ryde) after hours. Chris has 2 years of bush regeneration experience in Sydney, and he has 5 years of experience working on 2 development projects in agroforestry, food security, land rehabilitation and bushfire management in Senegal (West Africa). Chris established an organic farm in Senegal which is currently being managed by a local Senegalese team.
