If you’re anywhere around the South Coast of WA, I’d love it if you could put the 6th of August in your diaries!
The SEPWA group is a farmer initiated organisation, started to represent the wheat growers on the South Coast.
Since it’s conception in 1993, it had grown tremendously, their activities including lobbying, field days, trials, grower trips and many other things, including the SEPWA Ladies day, that is held once a year for farming women.
It is a chance to bring rural women together, to talk, to be inspired by the speakers and just mingle with women who are in the same situation as them.
This year the key note speaker is Sonja Johnson, who is a farmer and silver medallist from the last Olympic Games.
I’m also speaking on my journey, from the beginnings of Red Dust to the last couple of months since it’s been published and what the future holds for a farmer who writes. We’ll be selling copies of Red Dust on the day, for those of you who haven’t got a copy and I’d love to sign one for you and have a chat!

just a note to tell you I was at the fantastic Ladies Day today and loved seeing who you are and listening to you speak. Thank you so much for sharing with us all. You were wonderful and everyone loved you.
We had a farm at Neridup but sold that and now have Lort River Station.
However I am emailing this to you from our house in town.
Keep up the juggling and writing and inspiring other women.
Wasn’t lunch great? I loved hearing all the women (and guys) talk. Gemma from SEPWA and all the other ladies put in so much work to make the Ladies day come off so well.
Hope the season is treating you well, west of town!
