Collie, a 100-year-old coal-mining town that powers 70% of the state of Western Australia has just been informed by the government that they will be closing down the power stations by 2030, impacting 1200 jobs, in a town of 7000. Rod Zakostelsky, an enthusiastic big thinker from Perth, wants to open the first completely sustainable medicinal cannabis farm in the world, despite conservative local opposition in a town which has had problems with drugs in the past.
Could Cannabis be a life saver for this town? Rod’s crazy idea could be the beginning of a new industrial movement, not only for Collie, but an example for the world of how businesses can become more profitable with sustainability and community come together out of adversity.
We are aiming to raise $200k broken into two parts. $100k for our time critical filming and $100k for the first phase of our impact strategy.
