We are just so shocked at the weather that we've faced.

We're a family farm. My ancestors came here in the 1850s. When I was a child growing up on this farm, we did have variation in weather, but nothing to the extremes that we have now.

We had three years of drought and then we had six weeks of bushfires where the fire came and hit the farm four times. And then we had a flood.

"The climate breakdown makes farming a really tough operation. I'm struggling to survive."

We've only seen a 1.5°C temperature increase. The predictions are for a 3°C temperature increase.

What's going to happen from climate breakdown? Are we going to be farming? Is there going to be enough food for the future?

With the lack of leadership from Canberra, it is the local community that's having to step up and take action. We're ordinary Australians. We shouldn't need to be doing this, but it is up to us. If we don't do it, we're not going to make change.
