Our last newsletter touched on drought and the continuing and lasting impact this has on our fellow farmers and wider rural communities, including those living beyond the farm gate. 
    This past month we have seen Australian Spirit at best, with an amazing band of support that has rallied around this very concept.
    A heartfelt thank you to the many campaigns that are currently running and acting as leading advocates for our rural communities. This wave of awareness and celebration of all the bush has to offer is truly remarkable.
    We have compiled a shortlist to help your search in getting behind the cause, with all details and links on page below.
    And as always... We extend a big thank you for the continued support and encouragement for our own Farmgate & Twine journey xx
