One Monday, a few months ago, Nandi and I took to the road in search of a story.
As a journalism student, Nandi needed to film a report of something happening locally, so we ventured out to her local area, the place she grew up in, Castlemaine. I was her companion, map reader, and cameraman, as well as car DJ- we drove through the country side screaming along to Under Pressure.
Our trip took us through Bendigo (where we found cacti!), then Maldon (where it’s Christmas all year round!), then to Baringhup, where we found a general store, a caravan park, and a passionate community banding together to fight the proposed chicken broiler farms that threaten their town. We found our story, a story we really care about!
If you’re interested in following Baringhup’s battle against a proposition that threatens not only local tourism and the environment, but promotes the atrocious factory farming industry, click here.
All the love,
