Riverland women are hosting this year’s 20th Rural Women’s Gathering from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September. This promises to be a major event for the region with well over 200 registrations to date. Organisers are expecting at least 300 Rural Women from all over South Australia to make the journey to our great region. It’s a great opportunity to showcase this region’s great breadth of horticultural and agricultural primary production and Riverland hospitality.
The theme for this year’s gathering is ‘Our river, Our environment’. Besides ‘showing and telling’ our primary production credentials, there will be opportunities to exchange information on business endeavours, personal development, and of course social and recreational activities. Tours and workshops will be on the program. The Gala Diner, featuring Gill Hicks as keynote speaker will be the Saturday night highlight. Other speakers will include Karlene Maywald, well-known author Liz Harful and former Olympic Rower Barbara Fenner.
