“The program will be an opportunity for local farmers and community members to gather with family and friends for lots fun, fitness and food to Spring into Spring with their local trainer,” said Active Farmers’ Founder and CEO, Ginny Stevens.

“I’m happy that we can contribute in a small way by offering an assortment of free community activities during this challenging time of drought.”

“At Active Farmers, our vision is to build stronger and more resilient farming communities. We do this by bringing communities together through regular group fitness classes suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. This not only helps physical health, but also encourages regular social interaction, naturally improving mental health and community resilience. We think this is vital to ensure we can cope with tough times the best we can, such as the widespread drought”, she said.
