Basin Communities want a Basin Plan that provides for People, Production and Planet
Water and our community
Water provides jobs for our community.
We respect the power of water and want recognition for our part in caring for this valuable resource.
NSW Murray Valley farmers want to help with the drought crisis, but do not have an allocation despite considerable amounts of water in the storages.
Book Project - Food for thought
This year Speak Up’s major project will be publishing a book compiled by our local budding authors. There will be five categories and great prizes.
Entrants need to choose one of the topics or combine the topics below to produce a short story, poem, prose or other written piece. The pieces will then be carefully chosen to be collated into a book of short stories to be published. All entrants will be invited to the book launch.
The Power of Water
"Where water flows food grows"
Water is a precious resource, our farmers are efficient and innovative users of water for productive and environmental needs.
Agricultural landscapes provide an excellent food source for our native wildlife.
