With heavy hearts we bid farewell to Verity Morgan-Schmidt today as she leaves Farmers for Climate Action to take on new, exciting challenges that will see her continue her amazing work as a champion of Australian agriculture. Verity's passion, energy and vast knowledge has driven FCA's emergence as a leader in the space where climate solutions and farming intersect. In her three and a half years with FCA, first as our inaugural CEO and then as Policy and Partnerships Director, the voices of farmers around the country were heard loud and clear and climate policy across the industry began a transformation.  Everyone at FCA will miss her immensely and we consider it a real honour and privilege to have been part of her incredible journey which we have no doubt will see Verity play a vital role in shaping a thriving farming sector for decades to come. Thank you Verity and the very best of luck. ...

Happy Earth Day!
This gorgeous photo was taken by FCA board member and Longreach grazier, Angus Emmott (@angusemmottphotography). The theme for this year is climate action. We’re proud that we have over 5,000 farmers in our movement who, like Angus, are committed to achieving climate solutions both on and off farm.

With heavy hearts we bid farewell to Verity Morgan-Schmidt today as she leaves Farmers for Climate Action to take on new, exciting challenges that will see her continue her amazing work as a champion of Australian agriculture.

Verity's passion, energy and vast knowledge has driven FCA's emergence as a leader in the space where climate solutions and farming intersect. In her three and a half years with FCA, first as our inaugural CEO and then as Policy and Partnerships Director, the voices of farmers around the country were heard loud and clear and climate policy across the industry began a transformation.

Everyone at FCA will miss her immensely and we consider it a real honour and privilege to have been part of her incredible journey which we have no doubt will see Verity play a vital role in shaping a thriving farming sector for decades to come.

Thank you Verity and the very best of luck.
