Drought Recovery Webinar Series

Published on Thursday, April 9, 2020

Join this week's webinar with special guests Neil Bateup and Stephen Stafford-Bush.

Find out what Industry have been doing, what business and technical advice is available during the classification of a drought and what new supports are being developed and offered to our farmers.

Neil Bateup is the Chair of the Waikato & South Auckland Primary Industry Adverse Events Cluster, National Chair of Rural Support and the Chair of Waikato Hauraki Coromandel Rural Support Trust.

Neil is also a diary farmer in North Waikato so really understands the pressures of farming through a drought.

Stephen, a chartered accountant will be able to share some of the financial supports available through Government, IRD and your accountants. He will be available to answer questions and point you in the right direction.

The Top Six Inches - breaking the mental unwellness stigma by starting a conversation

Monday, March 1, 2021

Author: Marcia

Artist Paul Rangiwahia grew up in the rural town of Hawera and is no stranger to farming stressors. His previous art is displayed outside New Plymouth's Puke Ariki Library and was his first foray into how art could support positive conversations about mental wellbeing. Paul was aware of the pressure farmers faced, not only with new legislation but also with general on-farm stress. To combat the silence and stigma related to mental unwellness he created the artwork called "The Top Six Inches" using the analogy for not only where the majority of the plant roots sit in the soil but also the top six inches of the brain where resilience is developed by farmers who take care of their wellbeing.
