Rebecca Howarth

I started campaigning for environmental issues at aged 10. I went on to be President of the Environmental Society at University whilst studying Ecology and Conservation. I have worked in ecology and research in the UK and then became interested in permaculture and organic food growth after coming to Australia.

I now run an organic and local food distribution hub with my friends called the Fat Beets Food Hub. I am also the Community Garden Co-ordinator at my local Neighbourhood House so it is a joy to organise programs and events that engage people in a therapeutic outdoor space.

My campaign work in recent years has involved being a founding member of Frack Free Tas and we were successful in fighting for a moratorium on fracking in Tasmania. I am now working with local and statewide groups in Tasmania to challenge the exponential growth of the salmon farm industry into our waters.

I am always privileged and delighted to work with so many passionate and caring people who share my drive for making this world just a little bit better, to protect the beautiful biodiversity that surrounds us, and safeguard a future for the generations after us.
