Fit Farmer Support

So often it is not until crisis strikes that any of us seek help. Often working in isolation, and wanting to appear resilient and robust, regardless of the situation, we are reluctant to seek help and support.  Living in a rural community means available support services can be limited. The other issue is it can be hard to know what all these support services offer.

Upper Lachlan Landcare wanted to deliver a day with the community to inform people about what support services are available locally. Not only did we want to let people know where to turn when crisis strikes, but also what to do long before. We wanted people to take a break and check in with themselves. Ask themselves; Am I taking enough time out of my busy life for fun, relaxation, fitness? Am I giving myself every opportunity to be the best that I can be?

People attending our Fit Farmer Workshop on Friday had the opportunity to see and hear a wealth of information all in one space. Support services themselves even commented that it was so helpful for them to find out about other agencies and the support they offer. Some people went away simply with an extra spring in their step, while others felt a deeper response. Either way, feedback from the day was all very positive and worthwhile. We are now looking forward to planning next years!
