About this Episode

Rich talks to John Fry, Environmental Projects Manager at Skillset, former Landcare co-ordinator, experienced land manager and now Greens councillor on Bathurst Regional Council. What John doesn’t know about sustainability in the Central West isn’t worth knowing!

John was born and bred in the Central West and knows the land — and the effects of climate change on it — like the proverbial back of his hand. His insight, and warning that we can’t continue on a “business-as-usual” approach, serve as a stark warning for the climate deniers and developers.

John also talks about recycling, the long-term future of agriculture in the Central West, his own journey and the difficulty in raising climate change issues before parliamentarians and councillors.
