Tiaro event remembers floods and celebrates
LOOKING back on the aftermath of the January floods will be an important part of the Tiaro Farming and Lifestyle Field Day today.
Organiser Peta Jamieson said people from around the area had been invited to send in photos of the flood to create a gallery on the day.
The theme of the event will be sustainable agriculture supporting disaster recovery, which ties into the floods that had hit the region. The day has been organised by Tiaro Landcare along with the Tiaro
Chamber of Commerce, and will give
businesses the opportunity to host stalls and promote their products and services.
There will be a range of experts conducting workshops and demonstrations dealing with issues such as financial management, gardening, mental health and weed control.
Ms Jamieson said the event was held every two years and this would be the biggest one yet, with more than 90 stalls.
Along with the stalls and displays there will be a led steer competition, giving farmers the chance to show off their skill at handling cattle, and a school gardening competition which will be judged by Wide Bay minister Warren Truss.
Mr Jamieson said weather would not be a factor in whether the event would do ahead and encouraged adults and children to go along.
