Patch presented in 2002 by the Kyneton Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. The theme for the Kyneton Gathering was 'Ranges of Opportunity.' 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.

Physical Description

Felt animals have also been applied with blanket stitching. A triangular yellow and black applied felt icon is featured at the centre of the patch. It depicts a black mountain and is bordered on each side with hand-painted lettering that reads: 'Women on Farms/Gathering 2002/Ranges of Opportunity/Macedon Ranges'.
