Rural Women Self Acceptance Seminar

Do you really accept who you are? Would you like to? 

You are doing all the ‘right’ things. 


You work hard, you prioritise the family, you do your job or you keep your business or partnership running. You pay the mortgage and you try to eat right and exercise. 





But does it get you what you want? 



Does it ever seem enough? 



Maybe you have a nagging feeling and a nagging voice that doesn’t stop. 



And a missing link you can’t quite seem to define and a desire for more that you can’t quite put your finger on. 





And you’re keen to figure it out…you just don’t know how – or where or when! 

Well now you can with a FREE 1 hour webinar focusing on exactly these challenges; it’s called – The Rural Women’s Guide to Self-Acceptance – finding and embracing your YOUness! 

With Phoebe Maroulis and Rebel Black

The Rollicking Ram Sounds Rollicking Right!

The Rollicking Ram Co-Op


The Rollicking Ram Co-Op was created by like-minded chefs and artists to experience country produce and art in local communities. They combine artworks installed in or around local landmarks with bespoke produce and unique food experiences.
Their food philosophy is based on using food foraged from local areas, farmed by passionate farmers and small family run suppliers.
The Rollicking Ram Co-Op are looking for enthusiastic regional artists, farmers, food suppliers and communities who want to promote a wholistic food and art culture in their local community.
Head on over to their website and read the story about how the Rollicking Ram concept was created and upcoming events.

Bale Out Ball

Great initiative
Love this vision

Bale Out Ball

Bale Out Ball is focused on supporting Australian agriculture and revitalising rural communities. The aim of the initiative is to bring rural families and communities together and provide a social outlet for Australian farmers, while supporting agricultural regions and raising money to assist with drought relief. This will be done through events organised for the community, by the community. Any money raised will go to Buy a Bale, Aussie Helpers and back into the host community. 

Bale Out Ball Inc will host local events but, more importantly, provide an events pack to assist other communities in hosting their own events.
Bale Out Ball is a relatively new initiative started by local Coolamon woman, Sarah McCaig. In the brief period of time Bale Out Ball has been running it has become somewhat of a Facebook sensation receiving in excess of 7,000 ‘likes’. The initiative has generated national interest, with people ready to host events all over Australia. This goes to show the support behind not only Bale Out Ball, but rural Australia, and the willingness of people to become involved.

In the words of Sarah, “Help support drought affected farmers and rural communities and have a great night out at the same time!”
