Event Description

Breaking Barriers in Agriculture: Can you imagine having one conversation that can save someone's life?
About this Event
As we all adjust to the new realities brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic AND the already volatile nature of the beef industry, we are bringing BFO's Wellness on the Farm initiative to life...virtually, of course!

Join us for an evening presentation and Q&A with fellow farmer, co-founder of Do More Ag and the face behind High Heels & Canola Fields, Lesley Kelly.

After sharing a live video last summer of her and her husband's mental health stories that created a conversation within and outside agriculture and around the world, Lesley will speak to what sparked them to create the video, her and her husband's journey together on mental wellness, how it's helped them, their team and farm, and the power behind how one conversation can break barriers, change a culture and help save a life.

Lesley tackles the tough questions:

Why does agriculture face stigma and barriers when it comes to mental health?
How can self care, supporting with our means, boundaries, and support networks help us with our mental health (while supporting others through their journeys)?
What we each can do to make a positive impact to help our industry?

Mental wellness is a huge part of overall wellness. We are excited to have Lesley join us to help further the conversation surrounding mental health because your - our farmers’ - well-being is important to us. In order to take care of your family, farm and livestock to the best of your ability, you need to first take care of yourself.

Invite your friends, family, neighbours and fellow farmers (no social distance restrictions to follow with a virtual event!), grab a drink, get comfy, and let’s chat.
