On Tuesday 26 February, join Lock the Gate Alliance for a very special event hosted by celebrity chef Paul West. The evening will be a vibrant celebration of the resilience of NSW regional communities and food producers.
Hear directly from farmers and communities about living with climate change, including extreme heat and severe drought.
Be part of city and country uniting to support food producers, protect water and promote alternatives to risky coal and gas.
We’ll also share news of a new push in the Hunter Valley for coal communities to be supported in making the transition away from coal mining.
