How is climate change impacting your community?
Our local community, like many has struggled with the extremes of drought and flood.  We need to explore ways to remain sustainable, to share the knowledge of those within our community with our community.  There are many ways that we can do this, community gardens, education and strengthening our resilience.

What are you passionate about changing?
I believe that knowledge is power, people are often scared about climate change and feel helpless.  I want them to know that changes they make, even small ones, do make a difference, and that we as a community can make a change.
