Workshop: Resilience on the Farm

Tuesday, March 13

1pm – 3:30pm

Best Western Glengarry, Truro

Open to anyone in the agriculture community—farmers, workers, farm families, commodities, and industry extension and support staff.

Farming is a dynamic occupation. We constantly face challenges, whether related to production, finances, labour shortages, or to family dynamics. Having good strategies to manage the challenges we face on the farm is key to our success.

And, it may not be our own stresses or challenges we need know how to overcome — rather we want to know how to better support those we live or work with.

Knowing how to identify and approach stresses and challenges better prepares us to face those situations and manage the stresses in our day-to-day operations.

This workshop will help participants develop strategies to adapt to their own challenging situations, or to help others in overcoming challenges.

Workshop participants will:

  1. Learn how to recognize the different types of stresses, and understand how they impact our relationships and total health; and
  2. Discover the importance of coping skills and how resilience can evolve coping skills.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP by March 9 to (902) 893-2293 or info@farmsafetyns.ca.

Workshop delivered in partnership with Nova Scotia Young Farmers.
