SUE JACKSON Therapist | Writer | Photographer | Activist

An avid blogger for the last fifteen years, I believe in the power of the word to change the world. I have participated in, and reported on, a range of protests during this period, including the successful East-West Link campaign and, more recently, our wonderful, home-grown Extinction Rebellion (XR). If you believe, like I do, that it is time for ordinary people to rise up in defence of the planet, I encourage you to explore this blog, share it with your networks, and – of course – take action.

Further to our gardening coup, I wrote an article entitled 'A Green Light for Guerilla Gardeners' which was published on and will also be appearing in the final Pen newsletter of the year. I was also interviewed by Rosa on 3CR, who was delighted to hear a success story about environmental activism. Even now I find it hard to believe that we actually did it, and at the last Yarra Neighbourhood Orchard food swap a few weeks back we were all still patting ourselves and each other on the back.

I have further cause for celebration. This Saturday, our elder son, Luke, the designer of this website, is marrying his long-term sweetheart, Kelly, at the National Gallery of Victoria. Work and writing have been pushed aside as we assemble our festive gear, do our nails and hair and in some cases fake tan. Of course baby Jhonan will be the guest of honour and I've prepared well by selecting an outfit which will only be enhanced by patches of puke on the shoulders.
Congratulations Luke and Kelly!
