Margaret Simons on water, food, drought & politics

Church of All Nations, 180 Palmerston Street, Carlton

The Murray-Darling Basin is the food bowl of Australia, and it’s in trouble. What does this mean for the future – for water and food, and for the people and towns that depend on it?

Come along to hear award-winning journalist Margaret Simons discuss these issues in her latest Quarterly Essay. Her essay is both a portrait of the Murray–Darling Basin and an explanation of its woes.

Tickets are $25 and includes a copy of Simons’s Quarterly Essay. Please book here.
