Tasmanian Women in Agriculture have put together a fantastic opportunity for our States farm women to tour North America.
Kicking off in Oregon, the worlds largest grass seed producing region, our TWiA members will be hosted by members of their sister organisation Women FOR Agriculture.
Following a five night stay with host families in different parts of Oregon, the group proceeds to Boise, Idaho, for a further 4 nights with hosts. A highlight of their time in Idaho is a visit to the Boise Farmers Market.
The tour will then move to Saskatoon in Canada for three nights before returning to Tasmania.
President of Tasmanian Women in Agriculture, Annette Reed, said ‘it is a great opportunity to visit three very different regions and view North American agricultural production close at hand. By being hosted by families on farm, participants have the opportunity of a once in a life time trip’.
Places will be limited, so be quick.
For further information, please call 0438 026 918
