Organic Farming is in the NEWS...
Each year when International Women's Day comes around I am often asked to make a speech or presentation to inspire other women to fulfil their dreams, especially within male dominated fields This year it was such a gift to not only be requested for a segment on Win TV Wide Bay news, but also the public announcement that I was one of the 4 QLD finalists for the prestigious Rural Women's Award, and therefore be welcomed into the alumni of 230 other outstanding rural women across Australia.
I have done the hard yards in organic farming over the years, remembering fondly trying to squat down in a field to plant cabbage seedlings while I was heavily pregnant with a soon-to-be almost 10 pound baby. The depth of my journey has taken me to places I could never imagine, from Baffle Creek to Tallebudgera Valley, from the Granite Belt to Napa, from Agnes Water to Batiki Island, wherever I have trodden I have had pleasure of embracing the organic soil.
I am thrilled to be acknowledged amongst some truly inspirational women on this International Women's Day 2018 and hope that we all keep moving forward, one foot in front of the other.
