The Indigo Shire Council invites you to attend a free farming resilience day at a local country hall near you.

Nobody wants to talk about drought, but when things are pretty good, it's the perfect time to plan for the next one. If not now, then when?

Take the day to hear experts and peers talk about what the future may hold and what they are doing now to build resilience into their businesses and communities. Share your experience and find out what's working for others.

Check out the hall upgrades, check in with your community, and enjoy lunch.
