“A Piece of Good Land” with Val Carter
7 August @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Join us during National Family History Month in hearing Val Carter talk about A Piece of Good Land, “a farmer’s story of life, love and community spirit”. More than just a personal account of life on the farm, A Piece of Good Land is an historical record of Western Australian agriculture, and stock and sheep farming in the 60s and 70s.
Val and her husband, Ron, spent 12 years transforming the virgin scrubland in Badgingarra into an established property, where they ran sheep and some cattle. Each week or two they would travel from Meckering to clear, fence and crop, before moving to the property permanently in 1967.
The event is free but bookings are essential via eventbrite.
Light refreshments will be available.
