In 2022 Rural Alive & Well is the Official Charity Partner of AGFEST. With uncapped numbers, the event is set to once again be the biggest on the Tasmanian Agricultural calendar.
This year when people book tickets, they have the opportunity to make a direct impact to the work RAW is doing on the ground, out in the field, across Tasmania.
HOW? By including a dollar donation in their ticket purchase before checking out.
RAW is 100% Tasmanian built, owned and run.
100% of all donations received supports Tasmanians in rural and remote areas.
All RAW’s programs are built to deliver a proactive outreach service of specialised psychosocial support to reduce the prevalence of suicide.
We are on the ground, where and when you need it most.
To kick start the campaign Nutrien Water & Nutrien Ag Solutions have donated $5,000.

Rural Alive & Well (RAW) is a Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation providing specialised one-on-one, psychosocial mental health support to build mentally healthy and resilient rural communities and reduce the prevalence of suicide. RAW offers these services to individuals, families and communities without cost and no wait times.
Passionate and hardworking Rural Youth volunteers have been proudly organising Agfest in Tasmania for 39 years, delivering an iconic event declared one of the top three agricultural field days in Australia.
For the organisers, aged 15-30 years they develop a wide range of skills, including leadership, teamwork, time management, stakeholder engagement and event organisation.
Agfest has grown from the inaugural May 1983 event that attracted 111 exhibitors and 9,000 patrons into a globally-recognised event with more than 700 exhibitors and 60,000 attendees.
Agfest conservatively contributes up to $26 million into the Tasmanian economy each year, with hundreds of businesses relying on Agfest trade and leads to underpin additional business profitability.
