This Tuesday is #GivingTuesday. Support our farmers with just a gift of $5 and see real results

Imagine what you can do with just $5.
Buy a cup of coffee or a small snack?
Now imagine what an Aussie farmer can do with just $5.
Invest in the future of sustainable farming practices and for our future?
Actionable. Achievable. Real results for our future with just $5. Click here

While you and I might easily spend $5 on a coffee or a small snack, an Aussie farmer must sell 14kgs of potatoes or 12 ½kgs of pumpkins to earn that amount. As part of our From Farm to Fork campaign this December, we are asking you to help support our farmers by donating just $5 to our annual Christmas Appeal. If 8,000 people donate $5, together we can raise $40,000 to help our Aussie farmers at a time when they need help most.

Your investment will go into our solutions Christmas fund to help our Aussie farmers invest in innovative and sustainable projects for future generations and allow them to continue to provide us food for the future. Donate NOW

Imagine, your small Christmas present of $5 will help us find and fund Aussie farmers who are prepared to implement innovative and sustainable farming practices that will reduce the impact on our environment, secure the future of our food and help our farmers become more climate resilient.

This is how your donation can make a difference:

  1. Meet the Riggs family, owners of Lakefield Station in the NT. Their innovative farming practices have reduced degradation, environmental impacts, over-grazing and Co2 emissions and increased productivity from their cattle herd.
  2. The Mallee Sustainable Farming group in SA was established almost 20 years ago. With low rainfall in the area, the group has embraced innovative farming practices to improve soil surface and minimise soil disturbance, resulting in improved management of their natural resources and productivity of their land.
  3. Meet Craig and Tanya Davis, the couple who developed a dairy effluent management system to utilise 100% of their farm’s waste products. Their work resulted in a 40% saving in phosphorous & potassium fertiliser inputs, which allowed them to expand operations and launch a sustainable milk product called Green Pastures Milk.

These Aussie farmers were all finalists in our Landcare Sustainable farming practices award in 2014 and are undertaking the types of projects your donation will go towards. We are looking to fund the next generation of Aussie farmers to implement these projects and help share their ideas with other farmers throughout Australia. Your donation is a needed investment in our future.

Actionable. Achievable. Real results for our future with just $5. Click here

If we can get $5 from just 8,000 people, we will raise $40,000 which will help us invest for our future and for future generations to come.

Help us get 8,000 people and forward this email to your friends, family and colleagues.
