Rebekah Kelly’s family first sat down to discuss the future of their farm, Woodchester Station, two decades ago. “It was crazy stuff to talk about at that point,” Rebekah, 41, recalls, “because everyone was still relatively young. I think my sisters and I were either still at school or had just left.”
We’ve been privileged to work with Rebekah and her family on AWDT programmes and as she has shared her story with other women. It’s been exciting watching her progress and sharing her experiences.
