The Rosalie North Landcare group – which is running a free mental wellbeing bus trip around the Yarraman district next week – has just received a major boost.

The group has received grant funding from the South Burnett Mental Health Golf Challenge Funding Appeal, organised last year by Gavin Jones and Scott Henschen.

The appeal funds, which are being managed by Red Earth Community Foundation, means Jo Hassan has now been booked to accompany the journey.

Jo is a “vitality” coach who teaches business owners how to balance their business life and spare time … “a vibrant business and a vibrant life is possible”, she says.

The bus will leave Emmert Street, next to the Yarraman Recreation Grounds, at 8:45am on Saturday, March 9.

During the morning it will visit the Friends Of Yarraman Creek project and Tony Slade’s Native Nursery.

This will be followed by morning tea at the Upper Yarraman Farmer’s Hall where guest speakers will discuss mental health and wellbeing.

The daytrippers will then enjoy lunch and music from popular country entertainer Glenn Jones before the bus returns to Yarraman about 3:30pm.

The day is free but guests who want to buy nursery plants or reference materials should bring cash.

As seats are limited, bookings are essential – phone 0408-765-516.

The event is being supported by Wild Horse FM 99.7, JBH Rural, Peries IGA Yarraman, EE Muir and Sons, the Yarraman Hotel-Motel, Stanwell, the Tarong Power Stations, Darling Downs Health, Bunyarra Wellbeing and Red Earth Community Foundation.
