Don’t miss this unforgettable evening with Doug Avery to celebrate the publication of his much-anticipated book.

Recently awarded an MNZM Queen’s Birthday honour in recognition of his services to agriculture and mental health, charismatic Marlborough farmer Doug Avery now shares his powerful story in The Resilient Farmer, his much-anticipated new book of how he weathered years of drought and desperation to turn his farm — and his life — around.

The Avery family runs Bonavaree Farm at Grassmere, South Marlborough. The farm has been owned by the family since 1919 so they have a deep understanding of the land and how it is shaped by the weather.

The eight-year drought, however, took a personal toll on Doug Avery, and he suffered terribly during those long, dry years. Doug’s farm was depleted and so was he — to the point of severe depression.

The Resilient Farmer is Doug Avery’s empowering example of how to get life back on track. With candour and wisdom, he tells his story of turning desperation into determination, embracing risk, navigating change and, on top of everything, enduring monumental earthquakes.

Doors open at 6:30pm for refreshments (cash bar). Main event starts 7pm.
Available at the Regent, online and at Take Note.
