Registration open for rural women
IT’S time to register for the 2017 NSW Department of Primary Industries’ (DPI) Rural Women’s Gathering, with this year’s theme Women, Culture, Land – Just Add Water, to be held on October 27–29 at Narrandera. DPI Rural Women’s Network project officer Emma Regan said celebrating 25 years, the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering provides the opportunity for women to come together to build resilience by learning new skills accessing information, sharing experiences and having a voice to decision-makers.
“Organised by a team of dedicated women from the Narrandera and Leeton communities, the weekend provides participants with the opportunity to hear from a brilliant line-up of inspirational women, to attend a variety of educational and informative workshops and to explore beautiful Narrandera,” Ms Regan said.
“Some of the workshops on offer include: Blogging 101, oral history, legal check-up for your farm business, cooking, the secret to community engagement, photography, drumming, wool brooches, marvellous mosaics and much more.”
