It is time to get the green on. That’s right, Mullumbimby is going green in support of drought affected farmers and they are asking everyone to get involved and dig deep on this Friday November 16.

‘Instyle Living Mullum came up with the idea of choosing green because that is the colour of grass and therefore hope for the future,’ said Jenelle Stanford, president of the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce.

‘The president of the CWA in Bingara has also kindly donated some badges that will be on sale at selected businesses throughout the day. They are three colours combined; brown to represent the earth, blue for water, green the grass and a yellow button for the sun.’

The Mullumbimby Chamber has been supporting Gwydir Shire with a range of supplies from feed for horses to financial assistance and essential domestic supplies.

‘Last week we purchased another half a tonne of calf formula in our ongoing support for the Gwydir Shire,’ said Jenelle.

‘So get dressed up in green, pull out the streamers and get involved supporting our farmers.’
