Over 50 excited women from all over the Wheatbelt and beyond, came together in Goomalling for a truly magnificent day, filled with a perfect mix of inspiration and laughter, enjoying and learning from a diverse group of speakers devoured with gourmet food and champagne.
The room was filled with females from babies to grandmothers and were a captivated audience, relishing uplifting stories from Tanya Dupagne, Camp Kulin founder and 2017 Australian Rural Woman of the Year, and Michelle Cowan, Senior Coach of the Fremantle Football Club's Women's Football Team. Wow - just wow!
So many topics, such as the latest innovative techniques and practices in farming and agriculture, trialling bush foods and establishing specialised farm produce, fuelled the ladies' curiosity with plenty of questions asked, and were beautifully covered by speakers, Tanya Butler, Jules Alvaro, Deb Kitai and Sara Wilson.
Denise French shared her passion for protecting Black-flanked Rock Wallabies and Owen Catto from Regional Men's Health Initiative, stressed the importance of men's holistic health and wellbeing.
Wheatbelt NRM plans to make this an annual event, and judging from the enthusiasm, beaming smiles and raucous laughter, it can only grow. Rumour is that the 2018 Wheatbelt Ladies Day will be showcased in the beautiful town of Kulin. Stay tuned!
