Great to see some of our graduates getting the ball rolling here - who else has pics and stories to share? #creatingpositivechange #KeepingItRealWe know farmers have undertaken a huge amount of work protecting and planting vegetation on their farms and we want to celebrate that.
Show us the woody vegetation on your farm by commenting with photos from your patch – and please tell us where you’re farming. 👇
We’re building awareness of the recent research showing that NZ sheep and beef farmers are close to being carbon neutral, due to the woody vegetation on their farms offsetting between 63% and 118% of their on-farm agricultural emissions.
Woody vegetation covers indigenous forest, mānuka/kānuka, exotic forest, indigenous shrubland and exotic scrub. We know you know your land so show us what the right vegetation looks like on your property, and maybe what you’ve done to protect and enhance it.
We might contact you to see if you’d be willing to talk a bit more about it.

Congratulations Shepherdess Magazine - shear passion and perseverance to pull this off - we're glad be a foundation partner in sharing farming women's stories #KeepingItRealPretty stoked to receive a Highly Commended Award in the Best COVID Response category tonight at the Webstar Magazine Media Awards. We were in the finals with Here, a new architecture magazine which took out the prize, and NZ Life & Leisure, so no mean feat getting to the finals. To get this recognition from leading publishers in the industry, when we went into publishing at the start of the year, not knowing a thing about it, is quite heartwarming. After the conversations we’ve had today, all we can say is that there are some exciting times ahead! #magazine #publisher #newpublisher #covidresponse #ruralnz #ruralstories #magazineawards #highlycommended ...

congrats to you
Goals, people, sustainability, supporting local, mokopuna and connection.
For International Day of Rural Women, we’re celebrating the invaluable contribution women make as vital partners in the primary sector, our rural communities and society.
At AWDT, we know that while primary sector women often juggle a lot – families, careers, off-farm work, the farming businesses and more – it’s purpose and meaning that drives them.
In collaboration with our friends at Ravensdown, we spoke to several AWDT graduates about what being part of our sector means to them.
