Patch presented in 2001 by the Beechworth committee for the Women on Farms Gathering Banner. The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
The logo shows "the strength of women coming together to form a bridge between the past and the future. The computer screen and the women’s arms forming a satellite dish show us embracing new technologies. They help us communicate and present opportunities for social and business interaction. The heads of wheat symbolizes agriculture and growth. The image is encircled by the sun, which suggests a universal spirituality that encompasses us all." From the Beechworth Gathering 2001 Program
