Harriet Bremner and Alex Thomas

Spinning yarns that save lives.

“I’ve been caring for my Dad since I was 15 years old, and I’m on a mission to prevent what happened to him and our family from happening to anyone else’s.
 
#PlantASeedForSafety is a rural social change initiative that puts health, safety and wellbeing front of mind, and ultimately, brings people home to their loved ones at the end of each day.”
 

– Alex Thomas, Founder

So far, we've....

Alex would like to thank the following organisations for their generous support:

The latest from @plantaseedforsafety

  • This ray of sunshine is a fella by the name of Travis Gill. 

Trav’s a husband, a father and a farmer, and just happens to be Dad’s right hand man in his role as a support worker. 

Trav is patient, practical and kind, is extraordinarily generous with his time and embodies all the magnificent qualities that define an all-round, decent country bloke. 

Forever grateful to his wife Molly and our mate @alex_milner_smyth for hooking us up with this absolute legend.

Thanks mate, we’re so lucky to have your help. 🙏

  • See by definition, ‘agriculture’ bangs on about the science of cultivating soil, crops, rearing animals and so on. 

And sure! It’s all of those things, but not ONCE does it mention PEOPLE.

To me? 

Agriculture is a divine symphony of people, communities, animals, the environment and our supply chain…

…and it’s the oversimplification of this ecosystem that I think, precludes us from prioritising the health, safety and wellbeing of our people and our communities, and from being more inclusive, more unified, more collaborative - and from fulfilling our global purpose, which is:

💥 TO FEED AND CLOTHE THE WORLD. 💥

So whether you’re in the paddock, at sea, in a high-rise, a pharmacy, a post office, a hair salon, an agri-accounting firm, a pokey little home office (🙋🏻‍♀️👋🏼👋🏼) or a myriad of other places - 

to ALL the precious souls who dedicate their being to the sustainability of our industry:

I see you, and I celebrate you.

HAPPY NATIONAL AGRICULTURE DAY. 🎉🎉🎉

  • Farmer Lana’s flower farm was built in the wake of a bushfire that devastated her local community. She lives + breaths the happiness that flowers bring, the importance of health, safety + wellbeing and the necessity to teach kids how to grow stuff.
