The Post: Happy carbon Christmas, Colin

From The Post newspaper, 24 December 2016, page 4.

Premier Colin Barnett would have been in luck on Monday afternoon if he hadn't got around to getting a Christmas tree.

Local carbon farming advocates delivered a tree with signed leaves to encourage his support for the development of a commercial carbon farming industry.

Chilla Bulbeck said carbon farming was a great opportunity to the environment and to help pastoralists stay on the land.

"It's a no brainer really, and hopefully Mr Barnett will appreciate our Christmas gift and give pastoralists a Merry Christmas by allowing this to happen," she said.

Residents also handed over a new study that found carbon farming had the potential to be the next big boost for WA's outback.

Our Outback is an amazing place, but what makes it special is at risk. 

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality - tell government today.
