Women come together for National Agriculture Day

12 November 2017

Women from across Mornington Peninsula’s agricultural industries came together today to celebrate Australia’s first National Agriculture and Related Industries Day (AgDay).

AgDay is a national day to celebrate the remarkable contribution of agriculture to Australia’s economy and society.

Less than an hour from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula offers a diverse range of wine, food and fibre and is home to one of Victoria’s most thriving agri-tourism industries.

25 women representing local farms, Landcare groups and government organisations gathered to celebrate the achievements of the region, Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority, Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network and Mornington Peninsula Shire Councillor Antonella Celi.

The conversations and networking will continue at the 29th annual Women on Farms Gathering, being held on the Mornington Peninsula 16-18 March 2018.

Hundreds of women farmers from across Victoria attend the gathering every year and it is a unique opportunity for them to share their knowledge and experiences.

Registrations are now open. For more information go to facebook.com/wofg2018.
