Several catchment groups hosted Paul Rangiwahia who talked about dealing with stress as part of a wellbeing collaboration with Rural Support Trust. Feedback from those that attended was positive and there were some great conversations had as a result. Without farmers and growers having stable wellbeing then it is very difficult to focus on other activities that are planned for the farm. TCC have seen this as a priority, especially with the continuing adverse weather events having an impact on the rural community.
There have been 4 events held so far around the region, with another 2 planned.
