Rural suicide: Vic farmer raises $10,000 and sparks global conversation

A Victorian farmer will hand over more than $10,000 to Beyondblue, following a personal project that's attracted support from across Australia and overseas.

Noel Bull knows at least 15 rural people who've died of suicide and has been selling his 'Farming in Your Spare Time' calendars to raise money for the support service.

The calendars feature rural images taken by a photographer relative and tips about how to reduce the stress of farming.
