Hi <<First Name>>
Who was it who said: “May you live in interesting times”?
Last month, we made the difficult decision to postpone all remaining Ballance Farm Environment Awards functions, helping to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
It’s difficult to predict when life will return to normal. However, what I do know is that it’s important to have events to look forward to – where we catch-up and celebrate the best of humanity. So this year – reflecting the innovation and agility of our entrants – we're taking an innovative approach to announcing award recipients.
From 22 April, we're replacing our remaining award functions with online, weekly, 'virtual' regional announcements via YouTube videos. Get your friends together online, enjoy a drink and stay at home as we highlight the good farming practices of some of Aotearoa's talented farmers and growers.
Together with our valued partners, we’re looking forward to continuing to be part of a movement that reframes our food producers as heroes.
Thanks for your ongoing support during this challenging time. Stay safe, look out for yourself and your mates, and we look forward to catching up in person soon.
