As part of the Victorian Rural Women’s Network’s International Day of Rural Women celebrations, there will be a Country Cuppas event held in Euroa next Wednesday, October 16. Country Cuppas encourages women to take time out to connect over a cuppa with other women in their region and share ideas, networks and knowledge.

A panel including Euroa Arboretum environmental project manager, Cathy Olive, Open Food Network farmer, Serenity Hill and Landcare project facilitator, Ali Grimm will discuss their career journeys, the future of agriculture and regional Victoria and how we can support rural and regional women.

The event will also include displays from service providers including Rural Financial Counselling, Central Hume Primary Care Partnership, Goulburn Broken CMA, Victorian Rural Women’s Network and Gecko Clan Landcare Network.

Goulburn Broken CMA Regional Landcare Facilitator, Kerstie Lee said, “As well as a chance to catch up with other like-minded women working and living in our catchment it will be a great opportunity to hear from a panel of inspiring local women leaders in the sustainable agriculture and natural resource management sectors.”

The Goulburn Broken Country Cuppas event will be held from 10am to 11:30am (includes morning tea) at Euroa Butter Factory, Boundary Road North, Euroa. Cost is $10 per person (children are most welcome, entry is free for children under 5 years old).
