Ward off Climate Change

About the author


Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

Farmer's Markets Coming to Kalamunda

by Gary 3/9/2009 10:52:00 PM

For some time now I've been working to get a Farmer's market established in the Kalamunda area.

It is with delight therefore that I can announce that a Farmer's Market will start in the Mead Street Mall in Kalamunda on Sunday mornings from May 3.

Farmer's Markets are fantastic for farmers, the community and local businesses. Farmers benefit by receiving a fairer share of the sale price for their produce, thereby ensuring a vibrant fresh produce industry within the area. The community benefits from access to fresh, local, seasonal produce. Other businesses benefit from increased trade as a result of visitors to the market.

The market is being established in conjunction with the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce. Visit their website for more information, or check out the article in today's West Australian http://www.thewest.com.au/default.aspx?MenuID=77&ContentID=128935

Don't forget to mark down May 3 in your calendars.
