Learn more about the NSW ‘One Farm Day’ Year of Farmer/Reading blogging project.

2012 is both Australian Year of the Farmer and National Year of Reading. One Farm Day, via the NSW Writer in Residence program, brings these two initiatives together with a series of stories from and about life beyond the farm gate.

From shearers to fruit pickers and beekeepers; we will visit men and women working in all kinds of farming jobs across NSW and tell the story of their farming day. Highs, lows, mud, dust and all. A new story will be released each week and we will also be hosting workshops to help people tell their own stories.

Jan Richards from Central West Libraries gives a short overview of the project and catch a glimpse of writer in residence Sophie Hansen speaking to a farmer at the Australian National Field days drop in writers centre:
