Mairin started painting wind turbines because she found them so beautiful and inspiring. In the absence of policy, of leadership, of guarantees; these enormous feats of planning, funding, logistics – huge feats of human effort – are being built at astonishing speeds.

 

‘That to me is a demonstration of the possibility. To me that is optimism. That is the future. And it is beautiful. We have the solutions and we can implement them’. MB

 

 

 

 

Trees at Campbells Bridge.

 

With the environment at the core of her work, Mairin purchased 30 trees for us to plant on her behalf. These trees went out to the Buloke and Northern Grampians Landcare Network and were planted at Campbells Bridge, Callawadda. These trees are part of a biodiversity project, connecting native plantations on neighbouring properties.
