Join us in the fight to repower our communities through renewable energy.

Follow the link in our bio to get involved 🌞

We are excited to be in Canberra today to support the tabling of legislation that will underpin the Local Power Plan.

We want to ensure regional Australia benefits from renewable energy.

Time for the pollies to get on board and support community renewables 🌞

Our Facebook page has had all of its content removed. Hopefully everything will be back shortly so we continue to share updates on our work. 🐂🐑🐖🌱🌾🌞 ...

Will you join us, in sending a strong message to our federal leaders, that farmers support strong, immediate action on climate change and that includes agriculture being included in a net zero emissions target.

Please take action by taking a photo of yourself saying why you support net zero agriculture and then post it to social media using hashtag #netzerofarming #farmersforclimateaction

Messages from our farmers, making it very clear that Australian agriculture and the economy more broadly stands to benefit from the transition to a low carbon economy.

We can’t afford the price of inaction!

Thanks @hallygrammer! “The Australian livestock industry has committed to achieving carbon nuetrality by 2030 (CN30).
To achieve this goal farmers need political action now. We have not created this climate emergency, the fossil fuel industry has. But we recognise that everyone must contribute if we are to limit global warming.
We need a 200 million investment in research, development and adoption to achieve our 2030 goal. The Federal government needs to financially invest in this ambition rather than excluding agriculture from our National net zero emissions target.”

Thanks @meatyourbeef! #repost
Farmers cannot be excluded from a national action to climate change. We are part of the change, with actions come responsibility. farming is not just a business, it’s a passion, for the land and for the animals. We cannot exist without acting on climate change.
We want to be part of the solution and we will be part of the solution
We need our national leaders to include our industry in the country’s emission targets and to support our farmers in achieving zero emissions

Great message from Anthony Houston, a lettuce farmer from Tasmania who is passionate about climate action!

“Hey @m_mccormackmp mate the reality is these girls won’t be here in 30 years either but they’re more than happy to do the heavy lifting for you”.

Strong agriculture practices based on sound agroecological and regenerative ag management principles will get us to a net zero emissions target faster. Don’t leave us out!!!

Our leaders are dreamers and not in a good way folks let them know. Stand with your farmers working to heal the planet. #farmersforclimateaction @farmersforclimateaction @scottmorrisonmp #netzeroemmissions #afsa #netzerofarming @ausfoodsov
1. Take a photo with a message to our leaders stating your support for a strong stance on emissions including agriculture
2.include the hashtag #netzerofarming
3. Post to the socials tagging PM Morrison, Michael McCormack, and farmers for climate action
4. Ask friends and family to do the same.

In case you missed it, over the weekend Nationals leader Michael McCormack suggested that agriculture could be excluded from our 2050 net zero emissions target, declaring that he is “not worried about what might happen in 30 years’ time”.

It seems Mr McCormack’s missed all of the 2030 emissions targets that the various agricultural sectors have been making AND the National Farmers’ Federation’s 2050 economy-wide target.

Australian agriculture - and the economy more broadly - stands to benefit from the transition to a low carbon economy. And that we can’t afford the price of inaction.

Will you join us in taking action today?

Here's what you can do:

1. Take a selfie (on your farm if you can) with a written message for the Prime Minister and Mr McCormack stating your support for a strong emissions target that includes agriculture.
2. Include the hashtag #NetZeroFarming
3. Post to your socials (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) tagging PM Morrison, Nationals Leader McCormack and Farmers for Climate Action.
4. Ask your family and friends to do the same

No problem as I was able to chat with Jason Condon this afternoon via LinkedIn. The work continues, thanks again for the great team work of climate positive action. By the way, last week the strong FCA representation at 4 days of Agfest 2021 was an excellent! The network keeps growing!

Great presentation!

Hello Jason Condon, As a producer, user and trader of Biochar and related technologies I would like to know if any research was / is done using high pH Wood-Ash in agriculture? Dissolved wood ash high pH: Lye Water? Applied to surface or injected? This from North Carolina: livingwebfarms.org/waste-not-wood-ashes

Great work in progress! Thank you.

And that’s a wrap! We have had the best time at Agfest Field Days, Tasmania 2021!

Thank you to every single one of you that dropped in for a chat, took a farm gate sign home and supported us over the last few days. You all rock!
