Three older women in yellow and black holding placards.

30 Knitting nanas are in action, dressed in black and yellow with placards “No New Coal” on the verge of busy road; Industrial Drive in Newcastle, right next to the massive Newcastle coal export terminal.  They sing and wave; cars honk encouragement.

This is just one of the Knitting Nanas adventures Nanas Gally and Carol tell of.

Find out about the national Knitting Nana phenomena and how to join in.

Including a new song “Listen Deep to the Land”, music and lyrics written by Dallas De Brabander, arranged by Migel Heatwole sung by choir  "Ecopella" released as a cd "Green Footprints" in March 2018
