Gidgegannup Small Farm Field Day 2017

The sun was shining, kids were laughing, adults were chatting, food and coffee vans were humming and the Small Farm Field Day was alive with activity.

The Honourable Alannah MacTiernan MLC, Minister for Regional Development: Agriculture and Food was in attendance to officially open the day’s events and AHMAG were lucky enough to have a quick chat with her and newly elected MLA Jessica Shaw about Yankuang Bauxite Resources proposed plans to mine here in the Darling Range.
Minister MacTiernan said that before the field day she had no previous knowledge of Yankuangs proposals, but showed concern over the possibility of losing tens of thousands of acres of productive farmland to strip mining.
Given the Minister had only just learnt about the proposals, she made the reasonable comment that she would need to speak with Yankuang to get their take on their plans before she could have an opinion one way or another, so watch this space.

With such great weather and such a well-planned and executed event, AHMAG were inundated with support from concerned people eager to sign our latest petition to stop “Bulk Commodity” mining from occurring within 100 km of Perth’s CBD.

We would like to thank The Experience Gidgegannup Committee for organizing such a fantastic event and a special thank you to Jennifer Kent and Sally Block for always making us feel so welcome every year.
