The agriculture revolution is here!

Media Release - 25/02/2022


Tamara Smith MP, Member for Ballina and Greens NSW Agriculture Spokesperson recently announced a new Greens Agriculture and Rural Land Use Policy.

"After extensive consultation with farmers, ecologists and Greens members I can announce our new Agriculture and Rural Land Use Policy. Our policy draws on principles of Regenerative Agriculture and Agro-ecology and presents a win-win for farming in New South Wales. Improving land use and food systems in NSW will dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time improving long-term profitability and productivity, protecting ecosystems, and building more resilient communities". Ms Smith said
