 Active Farmers is launching a ‘Spring into Spring’ community support program designed to provide some light relief for those in drought declared areas.

 

Active Farmers, a not-for-profit organisation and health promotion charity, reaching people in small and remote farming communities is pleased to announce it’s Spring into Spring program is coming to Burumbuttock with local trainer, Allana Hayes.
‘The program will be an opportunity for local farmers and community members to gather with family and friends for lots fun, fitness and food to Spring into Spring with their local trainer, Allana!’ said Active Farmers’ Founder and CEO, Ginny Stevens.
‘I’m happy that we can contribute in a small way by offering an assortment of free community activities during this challenging time of drought.’
 
Following an initial launch event involving a free group fitness class and a breakfast, two free group fitness classes will be run each week for the following month for anyone in the area who would like to participate. Various health & wellbeing workshops will also be facilitated as part of the program such as nutrition and mindfulness. 
 
 “At Active Farmers, our vision is to build stronger and more resilient farming communities. We do this by bringing communities together through regular group fitness classes suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. This not only helps physical health, but also encourages regular social interaction, naturally improving mental health and community resilience. We think this is vital to ensure we can cope with tough times the best we can, such as the widespread drought”, she said.
 
The program will be run across numerous towns throughout NSW in addition to Burrumbuttock during the spring season, and hopes to deliver the program to many more communities, pending additional funding.
