On Monday Peter Auty, CFA volunteer and poet, represented Flowerdale at a lunch in the city put on by Green Cross held at the offices of the large legal firm Minter Ellison.
Green Cross Australia is an environment group for the 21st century. It helps communities to tackle the impacts of climate change with practical ways of addressing sea level rise and extreme weather. It inspires people to get active, to put the future of our environment and our community back in our hands. Its mission is to foster a global values shift towards a peaceful, sustainable and secure future.
Given the intent of the Flowerdale community to move towards a safer and more sustainable future it is good to have been invited to participate in a luncheon that was focused on looking at ways Green Cross can help bushfire affected communities.
Green Cross is looking to engage further with Flowerdale and we will keep you posted. I think it was good for the city folk to see a real life Flowerdallian and Peter said that the fillet steak for lunch was the best he had ever had.
