Event description

Description

Are you inspired by opportunity and the stories of others? Keen to meet like-minded women who share a connection to agriculture and the environment?

Pull on your gumboots, don your favourite frock and add your own native flora accessory…it’s time for the fifth Chicks in the Sticks event, hosted by North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) in partnership with Project Platypus.

Bring along your best friend, mother, sister or colleague to what will be another incredible event. Your morning will begin bright and early as you travel across the gorgeous cropping county of the Avon Plains. Upon arrival, we start with a 2.5km walk around Walkers Lake guided by the Avon Plains- Banyena Landcare Group, learning about areas rich cultural heritage and remnant red gum woodland.

Your walk will be followed by a delicious grazing platter lunch served in the marquee overlooking the lake. Two keynote presentations will be delivered. Firstly, a 2017 top ten finalist of the Regional Australia Institute’s Lightbulb Moments campaign, Melissa Connors will be presenting her heartwarming story which led to her to develop the ‘This Farm Needs A Farmer’ mentoring project. The 2017 Weekly Times Coles FARM magazine Innovative Farmer of the Year award winner and local success story ‘Dads Oats’ will be showcased by the brains behind the brand, Alicia Cain who designed the logo, packaging for the products after the concept of Dad’s Oats was born over a bottle of wine in late 2015.

We welcome you and your friends to an event that will showcase stories born from people being open to opportunity, who have turned dreams into decisions and untapped their potential. 2017 Chicks in the Sticks will delight you, inspire you and empower you to explore your own untapped potential, to seek out opportunities within the landscapes most important to you.
