About

Spinning yarns that save lives.

That’s what #PlantASeedForSafety’s all about.

And yet there’s a very special group of people who’ve been who’ve been planting seeds for health, safety and wellbeing ever since the dawn of time.

Rural women.

Because we’re on the frontline. We’re the canaries in the coalmine, and the barometers for the livelihoods of those around us. We live it, we breath it, we ‘get it’ and we care.

#PlantASeedForSafety is inspired by my journey as a carer for my disabled Dad – my superhero – who has suffered at the hands of drought, Q-fever, Ross River virus, diabetes, heart failure and kidney failure, and who continues to fight for his life.

It’s also inspired by the countless rural women who are relentless in their pursuit for better outcomes for their loved ones, who are steadfast in the battle against stoicism and who’s contribution to the sustainability of rural communities is beyond measure.

I’m on a mission to prevent what happened to my Dad and our family from happening to anyone else’s, to plant seeds for safety and to inspire more blokes to save a life, by listening to their wife.

It starts here, it starts now and it starts with YOU.

Who’s with me?
