Statement Of Significance:
A key feature that unites all Victorian Women on Farms Gatherings is the tradition of giving gifts and souvenirs to participants. These gifts are usually sourced from the region that the Gathering is held and include local foodstuffs, pamphlets, handcrafted goods and sponsorship items. They are usually handed to participants at the beginning of the Gathering during registration, and are often contained within a bag. This tradition of gift-giving allows the local organising committee to showcase their region's produce, as well as to make their guests feel welcome from the outset of the Gathering weekend. Sponsored gifts, such as this hat, are provided from a range of sponsors that vary from small local businesses to larger Victorian-based farming businesses and industries.
