After a couple of years doing not much physically - thanks to COVID and
the many many hours and days spent starting a new business - I am so
excited to join the 'Ride for Resilience'.
I can't wait to get on the bike again for a multi-day event and a total
of about 400km. I am expecting there will be a lot of pain!
The event will be held over 3 days 24th - 26th March
2022 and we'll be traversing the Meander Valley, Northern
Midlands and West Tamar regions of Tasmania. We'll visit current Active
Farmers communities of Hagley, Cressy and
Campbell Town, visiting many other small rural
communities along the way!
Check out this interview which
is all about me and the cause and the event.
We all know that there is a high prevalence of mental illness in the bush
and our farmers are approximately twice as likely to take their lives by
suicide. This is a shocking statistic and incredibly frightening. It
needs to change.
Active Farmers' vision is to build stronger and more
resilient farming communities. And you can help by making a
