Tactics for Tight Times - Social and Community Events

As our farming communities are continuing through tough seasonal and market conditions, we understand the importance of making sure farmers and the communities they support, look after themselves and “look over the farm gate” to look out for their neighbours.

Look Over the Farm Gate Program

The Victorian Farmers Federation, together with the Royal Flying Doctors Service Victoria, Country Fire Authority, Country Women’s Association, National Centre for Farmer Health and the Victorian Government will be delivering “Look over the farm gate” in your community.

“Look over the farm gate” is a Victorian Government funded program that will deliver community based training and activities to help our rural communities look after their health and encourage neighbours to look out for each other. The Look Over the Farm Gate website contains details for a number of support services that can help you and your family’s health and your local community.

Training and activities coming to your area in the next few months will help to raise awareness and support physical and mental health, as well as issues of domestic violence in rural communities.
