The sale of the invaluable farm at Hurlstone Agricultural High School is a blatant cash grab and typical of this Liberal Government's obsession with overdevelopment.

The Hurlstone Farm and surrounding land provides invaluable green open space for a community hit hard by the impacts of overdevelopment. Further, a fully-functioning Farm and working dairy enables students to gain a quality agricultural education and continue the proud Hurlstone tradition.

The green open space is also vital for students’ well-being, particularly for those at the hilltop schools of Ajuga, Campbell House and Glenfield Park. The students at these schools have special needs and the green vista is crucial to their schooling and overall well-being.

The preservation of green open space is also vitally important for our growing community.

Once the green open space is sold off to developers it will be gone forever.
