Christie Kingston

Farmer and Landcarer Western Australia

Farmer and landcarer, Christie Kingston helps her husband runs a 1500 hectare mixed cropping and merino wool farm in Goomalling in Western Australia’s Noongar country – a global biodiversity hotspot.

The wheatbelt crops and pastures on which her family depends on are rainfed, which means that if it doesn’t rain then it doesn’t grow.

Christie’s farm is experiencing the impacts of climate change through increased heatwaves, extreme and frosts, drought changed rainfall, and are at risk of more intense bushfires.

A former local government councillor, she is a director of Farmers for Climate Action and part of WA’s newly formed Climate Smart Ag Collective AgZero2030 group which supports efforts in WA to have net zero emissions by 2030.
