We took a group of farmers to Parliament House in Feb to talk to politicians and the media about the opportunities for regional communities from increased investment in renewable energy.

Charlie Prell and Karin Stark, both farmers from NSW with renewable energy on their properties, spoke to the media about the benefits this has brought to their businesses and communities.

Thank you to the farmers who have shared their time, energy and experience in 2021 to highlight the benefits of renewable energy for regional communities. A special thanks also to the hundreds of community supporters who chipped in so we could send these farmers to Canberra!

"Cherry growers warn consumers may have to pay more for the fruit this Christmas, as unseasonally heavy and widespread rain wreaks havoc in several growing regions.

The cherry capital of Young has recorded 216mm of rain during November, more than three times the long-term average.

Too much rain while cherries are ripening can cause the fruit to split and crack making the crop not worth picking.

Scott Coupland runs a cherry and stone fruit orchard in Young and he is yet to pick any fruit this season because of the rain damage."

Our landmark report by Ernst and Young looks at what supports are needed in order for ag to reduce emissions while increasing productivity and profitability.

The govt's net zero modelling shows they're not serious about cutting emissions. Farmers need a serious plan that will protect farming families so they can keep feeding the world.

A fantastic examPle of what can be done!

Good on you, thank you 😊

Good post; more like this about land management in the era of changing climate please

Launched in Sept 2021, our EY-authored report found that farming families can diversify their incomes, increase productivity and profit from strong climate policy, and that agriculture can increase productivity whilst it easily achieves net zero emissions by the year 2040. The report was produced with consultation from farmers, industry stakeholders and climate change experts.

The report was launched at a webinar featuring Peter Walsh, Leader of the Victorian Nats, and Fiona Simson, president of the National Farmers’ Federation. The launch attracted nearly 1,000 RSVPs and the report received over 660 individual media hits.

Since the report launch, farmers have been meeting with their MPs armed with the report discussing the opportunities for rural and regional Australia from strong climate policy. This photo is from a meeting from earlier in 2021 with MP for Mallee Dr Anne Webster.

Thank you to all the farmers and experts who were consulted for the report and to the farmers who have spoken to their MPs, the media and their communities about the opportunities from strong climate policy. Thanks also to our community supporters and generous partners including the Prior Family Foundation who enabled this important work to take place.

Why does every one ignore Dingos being the most important topic to saving Australia as without the the butong can never roam free and our environment collapse will not be stopped

keep up the good work but please don’t register as a political party wherein the representatives can be caught up in the horrific maelstrom of backstabbing and bullying

All those that came before on our Australian great lands, did the same..there was even a state gov' time when 'vertical integration' to ensure farmers could make more money, was the new biggest thing,, then permaculture, then 'meat lambs' not just shearers, then exotic fruits, imported - exotic cattle breeds, goats, camels, wild donkeys, until big corporations, swooped in destroyed the dairy farmers, the small orchardists, the small croppers, the hobby farmers, the fish and prawn pond breeders along with weavers, crafters, garment manufacturers, and a whole lot of other capable skilled people that made money from the quality they produced..Now once again 'what goes around is coming around again'........That's country life for you..here in Australia..Even though our Constitution protects us all from international take over of our food bowl agricultural lands and our freshwater,, The governments are to blame, the judiciary that paved the way for all our Constitution and our common law to be just 'pushed aside' to allow socialism ideology and elitist huge conglomerates to come in and simply take over, against each and every one of us Australians...its just not on..

Love your work
