AgWomen invited to share stories

Women involved in primary industries in the Mahurangi area are being encouraged to tell their stories as part of an international celebration of women in agriculture.

AgWomen Global launched last month to celebrate all women who help shape the primary industries in their countries, no matter the size of the part they play. 

It is a year-long project to collect stories directly from women who experience farming first hand. Images accompanied with written stories will be used in a book, as well as being posted on the AgWomen Global Instagram and Facebook accounts. 

The women profiled won’t only be from farms or the wives of farmers – they may be within a business that supports the industry.

“Please don't think you don't have a story for AgWomen because you're ‘just a wife or mother who lives on farm’,” Grass Roots Media NZ founder Chelsea Millar says. 

“By engaging with your community, doing the school run, inventing new tools or even working within an agribusiness, you're all playing a part in making the boat go faster so please share that with us. We’d love to profile you!”
