Your kids can be a force for good on the farm!

The challenges farming families face when dealing with the impacts of bushfire, pests, drought and flood have an enormous effect on our rural communities. In these times it is our children who can feel like they are uninformed and unheard.

The ‘Farm Force’ program provides our kids from the Hunter region a chance to have a voice. It will see the creation of a series of books addressing these issues that are written and illustrated by local kids, to be used as a resource for the local community.

Bushfire Battlers sharing their stories:

The 2019/2020 bushfires were the most severe on record as they affected so many of our rural regions.

We are asking rural kids to reflect on past experiences, learn about the importance of good bushfire preparedness and recognise how communities come together to support each other in times of crisis. This will make them a ‘force’ to be reckoned with as they are better equipped to help their families prepare for future events.

Your child’s submission is required by the 31st of October for it to be included in the book.

Visit the Farm Force webpage, click on Bushfire Battlers and discover how your kids can be involved.

This program is supported by Hunter Local Land Services, Hunter Region Landcare Network and Mid Coast 2 Tops Landcare Connection.
