Chainsawing For Women In The Adelaide Hills & Fleurieu

If you’re a woman who lives, owns, or works on small acreages or lifestyle properties in and around the Fleurieu, Adelaide Hills and Peri-urban areas, Chainsawing For Women has been crafted for you.
We have based this training on the assumption that you have no prior experience and/or limited knowledge of chainsaws, so that we can achieve the following outcomes together:
  1. Confidence to use a chainsaw safely
  2. Increased independence to use a chainsaw on your own property in the absence of other people
  3. The knowledge and technical terminology to have meaningful conversations with sellers of chainsaws so that the interaction is balanced and you will be able to buy the chainsaw that meets your needs
  4. To feel empowered to have a go at a variety of farming activities that you may not have felt confident to do
  5. Increase/improve your farm skills so you can be actively employed in Agriculture (and help address the shortage of skilled labour)
  6. To advocate and promote the safe operation of chainsaws and other farm implements #savealifelistentoyourwife #plantaseedforsafety

The goal of the full-day, hands-on, practical workshop is to provide you with the confidence to use a chainsaw safely so that you can increase how actively involved you are on your property or boost your independence.
