Catch up for a cuppa and connect with local women

Monday 30 September, 2019
A Country Cuppas gathering will be held in Euroa on Wednesday October 16 as part of the Victorian Rural Women’s Network’s International Day of Rural Women celebrations.

Goulburn Broken CMA’s Kerstie Lee said Country Cuppas encouraged women to take time out to connect with other women in their region and share ideas, networks and knowledge.

“We’re pleased to support this initiative that will see Country Cuppas held across the state,” Ms 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 panel will include environmental project manager Cathy Olive (Euroa Arboretum) and local farmers Serenity Hill (Open Food Network) and Ali Grimm (farmer/florist/Landcare project facilitator) who will discuss their career journeys, opportunities they see for 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.

The Goulburn Broken Country Cuppas event will be held from 10am to 11.30 am (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).

RSVP by Monday October 14 to Kerstie Lee to kerstiel@gbcma.vic.gov.au or 0437 310 840

This event is supported through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
