“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.”

Southern Yorkes, you sure know how to throw a #PlantASeedForSafety Party. 🎉😜💃🏻

Thank you so, so much to @katie.t.hughes, Weavers AgBureau and to the rest of the team from @syp_community_resilience for pulling off such a CRACKING few days, to @indeestone_flower_farm, @nourishedbyjo and @bowdenprint for your generosity, to @watsacowie @tastetheyorke, @mbcfoods and the @melville_hotel for your hospitality and to alllllll the lovely ladies who made the day just so special. It was a privilege to meet you all and *hopefully* take some of the anxiety (and crap TBH!) out of what SHOULD be the simplest, most practical thing in the world… bringing our loved ones home safely at the end of each day. 🌻

Thank you also to my main little man Louis for making the trek, and to the The Notorious B.G. @billiegreatbatch (the best, kindest, most thoughtful PA, friend, helper in the universe, ever) for coming along for the ride. ❤️

|| TUNE IN || AUSTRALIAN STORY 📺 MONDAY, 6TH JUNE @ 7:30PM ACST

Gah. This human. ⬆️

Shanna Banana Whizzmagorical Whan. 

Founder of Sober in the Country. 
2022 Australian Local Hero of The Year. 
Trailblazer, larrikin and lover of Timbo, dogs and life.

It’s no secret that Shan and I go “waaaaaaaay BACK!” 🗣🐕 🐑 and that we both share a universal desire for better outcomes for the bush.

But she really is something else. 

And while hanging out in The Canberra Bubble the other day (…as we do… not) she said, “Mate, how do you feel about a sneaky cameo in my next eppy of Australian Story? Put #PlantASeedForSafety up in lights? Whaddiya reckon?”

MIC. DROP. 

Shan had yet again turned HER once in a lifetime experience into something that was na-da to do with herself, and everything to do with uplifting others.

Because that’s who she is, and that’s what she does.

Go well mate. We’re right behind you. ❤️

Put health + safety FRONT OF MIND by asking your mates:

💬 What would you tell your / someone else’s kid before doing this job?
💬 What makes you nervous about this job?
💬 Have you ever heard of 💩 hitting the fan in this scenario?
💬 What do we need to do the job safely?
💬 What protective gear? 
💬 …is it all in decent nick?
💬 What could go wrong?
💬 How could it go wrong?
💬 What are we going to do to stop that from happening?
💬 What else do we need?

HOW. DAMN. GOOD. ⬆️

This talented young woman is 14 year-old KARLIE ZIBELL, and through her own volition, she recently delivered a talk on (…drum roll, please…) 🎉🎉🎉 FARM SAFETY 🎉🎉🎉 at the Kimba Area School. 

Described by her (equally fabulous) mum as ‘caring, energetic, diligent, willing to help’ and ‘sports mad’ 😜, Karlie is one of many rural youth who really do ‘get it’ when it comes to the importance of health + safety. 

Karlie - I want to be like YOU when I grow up. 

Thank you for being such a fabulous role model and for starting a conversation that could genuinely save a life.
