Spread out the wel­come mat

Bush Telegraph - - Gypsy Day On The Farm -

As a ru­ral com­mu­nity, farm­ers need to make sure new fam­i­lies are felt wel­come, says Pene­lope Drys­dale — leader of Tararua Dairy Women’s Network.

“If you know there is a new sharemilker down the road or a new stock man­ager we need to en­sure that ev­ery­one takes them din­ner or pops over and in­tro­duces them­selves so ev­ery­one is made wel­come and sup­ported,” she said. “It’s the same thing we’re try­ing to do with our work­shops at Dairy Women’s Network, mak­ing sure ev­ery­one’s in­cluded.”
