Community backlash over Landsdale Farm cuts

Community members have rallied together against funding cuts to the iconic farming school Landsdale Farm with a petition gathering the support of more than 12,000 people since it was started a week ago.
Silvana Rossi, the mother of autistic 23 year-old man Gio, spoke to Chris about the devastating impact closing the farm would have on people with disabilites.

Founder and former principle of Landsdale Farm School Ted Kelley also spoke to Chris about his original inspiration to create a place specifically for children with disabilities and how it’s become beneficial to the wider community.
