While Griffith's Banna Avenue is showing off it's community strength with citrus, our irrigators have taken the chance to show solidarity with other drought-stricken communities in NSW.
Over 12 irrigators have donated one megalitre of temporary water each to farmers further out west, despite the fact many are also suffering from the worst drought on record themselves.
Now, both member for Murray Helen Dalton and Farrer member Sussan Ley have been called upon to help get that water to where it needs to go.
The plan was pioneered in the troubled mind of local irrigator Tony Sergi, also a Murrumbidgee Irrigation director, after hearing heart breaking stories from across the state.

The final straw was hearing $150 million of government funds heading to NASA.
"I was lying in bed and had all of this swirling there, and I was thinking, how can we help," he explained.
"All of the people I called, not one refused me. Not one.
"Sometimes people like us who are donating, we might at the end of the season have to buy that water back, but we don't care. It's helping people."
So far, around 12 million litres of water has been pledged, equaling roughly $9600 based on the current market value.
Mr Sergi says he hopes to get more on board once more momentum is gained.
Peter Cremasco is one of the many to jump on board to "pay it forward".
Experience breeds understanding and with hopes of passing his third-generation farms on, he is willing to show solidarity with fellow farmers to keep their own dreams alive.
"As horticulturalists we can't donate hay, cereal crops or anything like that to the drought effort. But something like water, well we can," he said.
In his situation, he had to buy the water on the temporary market, but said "there is always someone worse off".
"It's a horrible thing to drive around the western districts and see them decimated - the fact they can't even bath their children... And as a parent, as a grandfather, it just kills you.
"We need to help our fellow farmers."
Member for Murray Helen Dalton was ecstatic at hearing Mr Sergi's plan when he approached her, and said it really showed off the generosity of those in her electorate.
Now with this plan, she says it's a chance for them to "put their money where their mouth is", to help get the water to those way past dire straights.
"I would like the government to declare a state of emergency, so we could then bring the army in to get the water where it needs to go."
Approached by The Area News, Farrer Member Sussan Ley said it was "a fantastic and extremely generous offer."
"I have no doubt Helen [Dalton] can find a way to get the water to where it is needed the most," Ms Ley said.
"In terms of logistics, I will be in touch with her to see if and how the federal government might assist through one of our current drought assistance packages," Ms Ley said.
