Today on The Country, Jamie Mackay caught up with Elle Perriam to find out how her "Will to Live" charity commemorates Mental Health Week.
On with the show:
With spring equinox is this Wednesday, we ask Monday's resident weather expert when will Southland farmers get a break. Plus, we ask whether the east coasts of both islands heading for a dry summer, and ponder who wants to live in Auckland.
We catch up with a Wairarapa-based farm consultant who is doing a lot of work around the future potential of regenerative agriculture and ask for some of our better soils, is it really worth it?
It's Mental Health Awareness Week and to kick it off we catch up with the founder of the mental health charity Will to Live.
We track down a Taranaki cow cocky and local rugby legend to salute the Log o' Wood going to the provinces.
