ABOUT Warragul WOF Gatherings

WARRAGUL - WOMEN ON FARMS GATHERINGS

The Women on Farms Gathering 2019 committee welcomes everyone to be part of the 30th Women On Farms Gathering at Warragul on Friday March 29th to Sunday 31st 2019. 

The first WOFG was held in Warragul in 1990. The aim was to look at the “challenges faced by women on the land, to share skills, information and experience, and to help each other grow.”

In 1999 the tenth WOFG was again held in Warragul, featuring “a celebration of the ongoing contribution of farming women while meeting the challenges in the agricultural sector in the future.”

2009 provided the challenges, after years of low rainfall then devastating bushfires throughout Victoria; over 250 women came together for the 20th WOFG in Warragul.  Together they listened to women’s stories, connected with both old and new friends and had a much needed break away.

In 2019 the 30th Women on Farms Gathering will again be held at Warragul. Women farming the land, those interested in agriculture, the environment, food production, rural tourism and more are all encouraged to come along and join us for a wonderful weekend.

More detailed information on all past gatherings can be found at  Museum Victoria History Of Women on Farms Gatherings .
