Would your town like a makeover? Then Rural Aid and our Farm Army volunteers can help!
Rural Aid, our Farm Army volunteers and Corporate Partners can help.
As the worst drought in history continues to take its toll, Rural Aid is launching a campaign aimed at providing 10 country towns impacted by drought, with a makeover.
Established within Rural Aid’s ongoing Sustainable Community program, the 10 Towns will receive a minimum of $100,000 each over five years.
Working with town leaders the money will be spent developing plans, through facilitated workshops, to support the long-term sustainability of the town and local community. Rural Aid will partner with experts in rural/regional town renewal who will work with town leaders to develop the long-term renewal strategy.
Rural Aid’s Farm Army of volunteers (usually between 50 – 100) will also spend a week in the town undertaking a range of infrastructure projects which town leaders identify as important to the town and community.
