LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND to be opened by local Greens MP Jamie Parker, at 7pm tomorrow night.

LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND will now be opened tomorrow night, Friday 15 November at 7pm by Jamie Parker MP for the local seat of Balmain. 

The previous arrangement for John Kaye MLC (who has also opened other WRVAP projects) to open LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND had to change when he became no longer available. 

WRVAP is pleased and honoured to have our own local member and the only Greens lower house member of the NSW parliament to open its current project, LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND.
