Resilient Farms for the Future will be the second event in a three-part Resilience Drought Support Series delivered by Edward River Council under the Drought Communities Programme.

This event will be an empowering and informative dinner event for the rural, farming and agribusiness community focussed on diversification, farm financial management and resilience. Each of the presentations and workshops will enable producers to develop key skills around business development and resilience to take with them into their farm businesses and give them direction for the future.

The event ticket includes dinner and soft drinks, and other drinks are available at the bar.
