Board member, South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Board
Mr Love made his career in theatre and the arts as a playwright and toured Australia with his own play for eight years. Raised on 160 acres belonging to his grandfather on the banks of Lake Alexandrina, Mr Love’s formative years were all about soil, land, plants, animals and water.
Having grown up in Wellington, Mr Love has a solid understanding of the way the entire river system operates: the wildlife, flora, the overlapping of land, water, community, and the changes impacting on them.
Mr Love runs workshops in schools for students and teachers in the art of storytelling. Communication and sharing stories is critical in understanding and describing the natural world to children who live in the suburbs and are unfamiliar with the larger system.
