Yesterday saw the #LeardBlockade throw open the gates to locals in our first of monthly BBQ days. This new monthly event aims to demystify the camp and its inhabitants, and to help local people understand why the campaign is important to stop the negative effects of coal mining in the area.
Over 24 people from the community came along for an afternoon of food, friendly conversations and tours of the camp, they also got to view the forest and mines from nearby cliffs.
A highlight of the day was the tours of the new aquaponics set up which helps ‘Da Garden’ grow fresh organic food for the camp. Salad made and served on the day was made from the ingredients grown on site.
Stay tuned for the dates of the next BBQ day!!
