Upcoming Events

Ag Proud is hosting BBQs, Wellness Seminars and more!

Our signature event is hosting barbeques around NZ. They create an opportunity for the rural sector to take a mental health break and share positive stories, and for our urban cousins to take some time to talk to a farmer or rural professional.

2020 continues to be challenging for the rural community due to the uncertainty of COVID 19 and the Government’s Freshwater initiatives, especially in regard to winter grazing.

AgProud is moving away from stand alone events as more and more we are being asked to help with other events or for advice. We are thrilled that the messaging around rural mental health has changed for the better and continues to gain traction.
