Clean air, clean water, and land to grow clean, healthy food: These things are priceless

Have a look at this wonderful new video from Our Land, Our Water, Our Future. It's about everyday people who are juggling the everyday commitments of work and family with the added challenge of standing up to protect our land and water, because they know how much is at stake.

People in communities across the state are doing what they can, when they can. Take Rosemary. Rosemary is a farmer from the Liverpool Plains where she produces crops including mung beans, faba beans, sorghum, wheat, and grazes Black Angus and Wagyu cattle. She's also an inspirational leader in her region's fight against coal and gas.

"We should be just producing food,” she says, "But now we're spending our lives fighting for our existence."

Rosemary is one of the women in the new video, made to showcase some of the stories of people in our communities who are standing up to demand protections for our farms, forests, water and communities.

Please watch the video and share it with your friends.
