On February 13, my co-creator Simone Kain took out the prestigious title of SA Rural Industries R&D Corp Rural Women’s Award for 2017! What an honour 👍🏻 Thanks to you all for your ripper support in our endeavours to educate kids about farming and where food and fibre comes from.
Simone, Ben and I are really looking forward to developing our new free educational school resources, as part of the $10,000 awards bursary, which will showcase the vital role that women have played in Australia’s agricultural history. Did you know that women make up nearly 50% of the agricultural workforce? Australian ag wouldn’t be where it is today without this contribution. It’s going to be beaut to help educate the next generation about this and what innovative careers may be available for them in their futures.
As part of the award, Simone also partakes in an AICD Company Director’s Course and will vie for the national title in September.
