rural womenThe annual Women on Farm Gatherings was recently held in Cohuna with over 200 women from across Victoria attending.

Women from across Victoria travelled to Cohuna last weekend to take part in the annual Women on Farms Gathering.
Chairperson of the Cohuna committee Lorraine Learmonth said the weekend was a resounding success.
"The whole weekend went brilliantly and we have received a lot of positive feedback," Mrs Learmonth said.
The weekend provides rural women with a chance to catch up with old friends, meet new ones and learn some new skills along the way. It also provides a chance to listen to some inspirational rural women speaking.
"Women can discuss their problems, be motivated or simply relax for the weekend. Many went home on a high and commented on how great the town was."
The gatherings also provides small rural towns with an opportunity to showcase their amenities and provide tourism opportunities into the future.
"A lot of women said they would love to return to the town with their families. The weekend really was a credit to the hard working committee."
Beverly Hicks from Mudgegonga said the weekends were always great, regardless of what you do.
Mrs Hicks attended a jewellery making workshop, went on a garden tour and said she really enjoyed the inspirational guest speakers.
"It's great to meet up with new and old friends."
Lyn Finlay from Yarram has been to eight different gatherings over the years.
"Coming back and catching up with friends you have met is just great. The Cohuna committee has done a great job with the whole set up this year," Mrs Finlay said.
Pat Moran from Shepparton said she enjoyed travelling to different places.
"It was interesting to hear peoples flood stories and the guest speakers were very inspiring women."
