Patch presented in 2004 by the Horsham Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. The theme for the Horsham Gathering was 'Happy, Healthy, Harvesting and Having a Go'. 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.
