Land Water Future works with communities across NSW, and engage people in Sydney with stories from coal and gas affected regions. LWF seeks to highlight the issues facing communities on the frontlines of coal and gas expansion and to strengthen relationships between urban and rural communities, to win permanent protection for agricultural land, forests, water catchments and communities.

He was involved in the production of 2 reports by Groundswell “Exposing the Risks: Fundamental Flaws in AGL’s application to frack CSG wells in Gloucester” and “Poor ESG and AGL in Gloucester”. Jeff worked in water resources/environmental management for WA Government water agencies then spent 5 years working in PNG on village water supplies through the Uniting Church relief and development agency and then a further 4 years as Pacific project officer before retiring to Gloucester in 2008.
