Growing and Blowing – 12 October 2019

Around the world at the moment people are calling for change, to how we impact the planet and how we maintain our lifestyle. While celebrating my darling wife’s birthday today we took a road trip past the wind farm at Mt Mercer in Central Victoria. This wind farm is large, and in sight of the newest central Vic wind farm at Ballan. In contrast to carbon heavy electric generators, think big coal, gas and the nuclear option I’ve never seen power generating plant surrounded by food grade product.  Until today.

Hope that you enjoy the images.
