Suited and booted for black-tie party at Secret Garden Ball
An historic town hall will set the scene for a black-tie ball this weekend, bringing together farmers of all ages from across WA.
Southern Dirt Young Farmers Network will hold its second Secret Garden Ball in Boscabel, north of Kojonup, on Saturday night, with ticket sales open until Thursday night unless sold out.
The Kojonup-based branch of established grower group Southern Dirt was founded in 2016 to co-ordinate educational and social events for young farmers.
It aims to connect rural youth and give the faces behind future farming communities the ultimate support network.
Co-ordinator Caroline House said the group aimed to bring together like-minded people from the regions. “It’s a chance to get away from the stresses of the industry and life generally with like-minded people,” Ms House said.
The ball is one of many events the group holds throughout the year, including an annual sundowner and forums.
The event is open to anyone with ties to the agricultural industry or rural communities. Money raised on the night will go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Ball tickets and memberships can be bought at www.trybooking.com/WJHU or through the Southern Dirt Young Farmer Network Facebook page.
