A reliable food surplus is what holds villages, towns, cities and the nation that governs them together


These are the food producing women of the NSW Liverpool Plains:



What is not as well known is that the NSW 100 km wide coastal strip historically produces 20 per cent of the state’s agricultural product each year.

This strip includes much of the NSW Northern Rivers regions.

A reliable food surplus is what holds villages, towns, cities and the nation that governs then together and, this surplus is dependent on uncontaminated soils and clean water.

Coal seam gas and other unconventional gas mining places soil and water at risk in the rural and regional areas miners choose to industrialise.

Something to think about as we mark our ballot papers on 28 March 2015.
