Farmers and schools sought for Farms2Schools program

22 June 2020

The Port Phillip & Westernport CMA is calling on farmers and schools in the region to express their interest in participating in this new education initiative.

Farms2Schools is an innovative program that will use school incursions and excursions with farms to provide students with an insight into how agricultural products get from the paddock to their plate.

The program will introduce students to farmers and agricultural industry workers from their local area, who will share information about farming through a range of visual and practical activities.

The program aims to deliver 180 incursions and 60 excursions in the next six months across the south east (Western Port and Mornington Peninsula catchments), north (Yarra catchment) and west (Werribee and Maribyrnong catchments) areas of the Port Phillip and Western Port region.

Three Farms2Schools Coordinators will work will schools and farmers to deliver the program.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government.
