Photograph: Seth Buchanannvironmental advocate and 2014 National Rural Woman of the Year, Pip Job, is working to create a better future for our farmers through social change. She is changing the way we view and practice farming through her social auditing program.
Pip says ‘overcoming social challenges is the only way to achieve real productive change for farming families and the land.’
‘The only way to have a strong agricultural industry into the future is that we recognise the importance of people, the importance of mental wellbeing, the importance of the environment and these are all key elements in strong           businesses and strong communities.’
