Brunch on Us - Southland Events in October

We have lined up a bunch of "Brunches on Us!" for rural Southland this month.

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

Author: KatrinaThomas

Southland farmers deserve a treat every now and then, so we’ve organised seven pop up brunch BBQ 's and coffee carts in a few Southland rural communities where we haven’t visited a lot of recently.

The Southland Rural Support Trust along with a number of Southland agriculture businesses and organsiations -  Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Farm Source Otago/Southland - Otautau, NSVets PGG Wrightson Ltd, Rural Women New Zealand,  Silver Fern Farms and Alliance Group are picking up the cost or cooking on the BBQ. Yes, it is a free feed!

We are keen to catch up with managers, owners and farm teams.

As well as a FREE feed and a coffee, farmers can chat to the Rural Support Trust, other Southland Rural Professional representatives and enter to win a hamper for your team, thanks to Rural Women NZ.

Come as you are, stay for a chat or gobble and go!

Timing: 10.00am - 1.00pm

Take Time to Thrive without feeling guilty

With Loshni Manikam

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Author: WandaLeadbeater

Facilitator Loshni Manikam, who is also a farming woman and a mum of 3 sometimes-lovely children, has set-up Thriving Farming Women to help other women identify and overcome the hurdles that get in the way of them thriving.

Loshni has overcome some of the same hurdles herself and loves sharing the lessons she has learnt along the way. She is a trained coach and facilitator whose work resulted in her being awarded the title of Fonterra Dairy Women of the Year 2018.
