Agricultural Action Group (non-profit, volunteer, apolitical)
Fighting for the future of the agricultural/horticultural industry, rural communities and all those living and working on the land!Nationwide
Rob Wilson, Heather Meri Pennycook and Fred Roberts formed the apolitical (self-funded) group AAG (Agricultural Action Group) on election night in October 2020 as they realised the Government (and Policies) were not going to change and they were extremely concerned for the future of the rural sector and for NZ as a whole. To date they have completed more than 65 community meetings all over the nation (with many local community groups starting as a result of this). AAG has a Facebook page, newsletter and is about to go live with a comprehensive website in the next 1-2 weeks (ultimately including a blog, podcasts, videos and content on several other independent media platforms).
The aim of AAG is to -
1) Educate/inform people about what is really happening in NZ
2) Inspire/motivate people to take action
3) Resource/facilitate local groups all over NZ to push back and give them effective tools to do so (and work in unity and mutual support alongside other groups with similar goals)
Use of funds
Donations go into the ASB Account of Jill Templeton-Financial Controller. A team of 4 people administer AAG invoice payment re venue hire, fliers, meetings, website hosting/newsletter distribution (we currently self-fund all shortfalls and costs).
