Frackman —— Building a local food future  —————  Sustainability workshop series

Frackman movie screening, Albury – Regent Cinema, 22nd April
(no we won’t be offended if you miss our pumpkin night to see it!)

“Dayne Pratzky loved the quiet life on his rural block in central Queensland. Then the coal seam gas company arrived, and that changed everything. Legally he couldn’t stop them mining his land, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t fight. And so began a David and Goliath battle against a $200 Billion industry. Along the way he found love, tragedy and triumph.” 

Tickets: $20 (in advance only)
