Mentally Fit EP to host major Cowell event

Tickets are now available for a weekend of events for drought affected farmers to be held mid-April in Cowell.

The 'Growing Together' event will be hosted by Mentally Fit EP on April 13-14 with a guest appearance from media personality Sam Kekovich.

Workshops promoting resilience in farmers will run through the Saturday at the Cowell Institute, from mindfulness training to perspectives from farmers working in local agriculture and aquaculture.

Private appointments with Rural Business Support and Centrelink will be available throughout the day.

The Cowell Commercial Hotel will be hosting a three course buffet dinner on the Saturday night, where farmer David Head and Sam Kekovich will be guest speakers.

Port Lincoln band Weezil will be playing live after the dinner in the beer garden.

The Sunday will begin with the second Middle Camp to Cowell fun run to raise funds for the Cowell silo art project, ending in a family day at the Cowell Oval.

Activities including bubble soccer, archer tag and a jumping castle will be available in the afternoon.

Buses to the event will be run from Kimba, Lock and Port Neill, with pickup available at towns in between.

Tickets for workshops and the dinner are available at mentallyfitep.wixsite.com/growingtogether, with information on buses available through the Mentally Fit EP Facebook page and the Franklin Harbour District Council.
