Freshwater Farm presenting to ILF

Freshwater Farm presents $26,600 to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation

This week saw the celebration of a hugely successful collaboration between Indigenous artist Brittney Paulson and Northern Beaches-based business Freshwater Farm. On a rainy Sydney day, the sunshine briefly appeared when CEO and Founder Al Hutcherson presented a cheque for $26,600 to Indigenous Literacy Foundation representative Laura Atherden, with the help of Brittney Paulson and Northern Beaches Council Mayor Michael Regan. Al’s speech began with an acknowledgment of the country and a welcome to Brittney and our guests. He then explained that the purchase of the farm (Freshwater Farm) has been the realisation of a life-long dream for him and his family and the regeneration of the native oil plantation has become his passion, with the oils distilled at the farm being used to manufacture Freshwater Farm products.
