Drought Recovery GLENRAC Style - Glen Innes

14th May 2019

Source: FRRR TTTT

Value: $19,980

This project will deliver a series of 12 events across 15 months for the Glen Innes Severn community. These events will be focussed around building skills, knowledge and confidence for drought management and recovery. The events will be short (maximum 3 hours) evening activities to encourage participation, especially those with off farm employment. They will include a light meal to provide time for networking to increase sharing and connectedness in our community and provide some peer support in dealing with drought recovery and management. 

The funds will contribute to advertising in local media (Glen Innes Examiner), venue hire (Glen Innes Services Club), catering, speaker / presenter fees and costs such as travel / accommodation and staff time to coordinate the events. GLENRAC has significant experience in running similar events over a number of years so have a good knowledge of the costs and in kind contributions. 

Drought recovery is a long process with many different phases and requirements. GLENRAC will utilise the collective knowledge and experience of our Board, consisting of 15 landholder and government agency representatives, to inform the focus of these monthly events. We are aware of the need for maintaining connection and support networks in dealing with challenging times, and will provide the time and space for networking and sharing at these monthly events with a light meal and encouraging social interaction.
