Responsible eating!

As the NSW govt are now selling off our artesian water we’re all going to need to learn to eat food that doesn’t require as much water!
Cornell University reports that 100,000 litres of water are required to raise 1 kg of beef (end product). CSIRO states 50,000 to 100,000 litres. Soybean and rice production require only 1600-2000 liters per kilo.
The Australian Conservation Foundation reports that animal products make up 34% of our eco-footprint- far more than transport. Just as there is a pressing need for us to shift to more renewable energy, a move to a more sustainable diet is equally vital.

Sustainable food means using effective farming techniques.
Peter Andrews has dedicated himself to sustainable farming using the principles of ecoliteracy- even if he didn’t know it- and convinced some surprising heavy hitters along the way.

Jacob’s Creek winery in South Australia has also successfully rehabilitated the original Jacob’s Creek to regain significant diversity.
