Rural Women New Zealand (RWNZ) was established in 1925 by women who wanted better social and economic conditions for rural people.
For more than 90 years it has been at the forefront of rural issues, working to grow strong sustainable rural communities.
Rural Women New Zealand is a charitable, membership-based organisation, which supports people in rural communities through opportunities, advocacy and social connections. Members are diverse, but all share rural interests that connect and energise.
RWNZ is the leading representative body promoting and advocating on rural health, education, land and social issues. It provides information, support, practical learning and leadership opportunities.
There are groups throughout New Zealand, with each group setting their own programme to suit the interests and learning needs of their members.
Some groups meet for networking and friendship, often supporting their local communities through events or fundraising. Others are focused on education and learning, and facilitate training days and workshops.
Another way of being involved is to become an individual member as this still allows as little or as much involvement as time allows.
The South Canterbury Women in Farming group provides opportunities for women who want to share farming knowledge and develop new farm based skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
Successful activities in the past have included arange of guest speakers, field trips, hands on training and farm visits on a wide variety of topics such as calf rearing, dog training, firearms safety, agricultural chemical handling courses, ATV safety training; selecting bulls, animal health and nutrition.
The group meets once a month. New members welcome.
