The Community Drought Assistance Forum was held in Swansea on Thursday 29 November. The forum provided local farmers, producers, community groups and individuals with key information on drought assistance and support services. The forum received excellent representation from participating stakeholders including: Rural Alive and Well (RAW), DPIPWE, East Coast Producers Group, Bureau of Meteorology, Rural Business Tasmania, Red Cross Community Resilience, and Safe Farming Tasmania.
TFGA encourages all producers to reach out and become familiar with these ongoing resources to assist your farm business in times of hardship.
TFGA are currently working with the East Coast Producers Group to identify the best way to coordinate donations and other support from the broader community. More details to follow.
