Landcare Legend

Penny Sadubin

“I believe our young people are capable of so much more and that given the opportunities they will respond and exceed our expectations.”

I am an artist and landscape designer and passionate about creating artworks which highlight marine pollution and sea plastics. through my art, I aim to show how the convenience of modern living is costing our planet hugely.

I also run a gardening and sustainability program at Gerringong Public School and believe in the power of youth.

Young people are given a hard time at the moment. They are portrayed as selfish and lazy by the media. They are criticised and often feared by our communities but also given fewer opportunities for personal responsibility than ever.

I believe our young people are capable of so much more and that given the opportunities they will respond and exceed our expectations.

As a working Mum, I am very aware of the complexities facing modern families and feel that a connection to the natural world helps us all to grow, flourish and be happy.
