Don’t forget our Farmers
I’m always trying to do my bit for our regional farming families. Growing up around farm life, it’s something that I am constantly exposed to.
It doesn’t take much for you to realise the state is still in a serious drought, take a drive out west and your heart will sink. But this isn’t to discourage you, I want you to take a drive out there, try to understand what our regional farming families are going through, pop into the local coffee shop and grab a coffee for everyone, or maybe a giftware store, buy up a storm you’ll have no idea the good you are doing. Introduce yourself to locals, they love a good yarn I’m telling you.
If you have links to a farming community, offer your time to help, creatives, get out there and use your social media power for good, take photos, paint pictures, go on a road trip.
Not everyone has the luxury of being able to donate funds, it’s understood everyone is fighting their own battles in life, but if you can do any of the above things mentioned, you’re turning a small town’s economy around, which in the long run, supports our struggling farmers.
