Patch created retrospectively by the 1992 Numurkah Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. The theme for the Numurkah Gathering was 'Pride in Agriculture, Pride in Ourselves.' The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
This item is part of the Invisible Farmer Project. A key aim of this project is to redress the absence of rural women in mainstream histories and museums.
