These Young Farmers are some of agriculture's youngest advocates, representing all different aspects of primary industries and providing a link between life on the farm and the classroom. They are the future of our primary industries—they are passionate and engaged, and will be the driving force of our industries by being innovative, progressive and pushing the envelope to ensure this State's sector is the envy of every other State.
The Young Farming Champions program is remarkable for its aspirations and purpose, especially as it has been pioneered and developed by an altruistic and big picture thinker from her own personal resources, for the good of agriculture as a whole, outside of any charity or industry body organisation.
There are three major aspects of this program that contribute to its success, for the participants and for the agriculture sector as whole:
The workshops conducted by the picture you in agriculture team deliver the communications skills necessary to allow young people to step up into internal and external facing leadership positions either as a spokesperson or role model. These workshops are delivered by people who understand agriculture. The feedback about these workshops over the years by our young farming champions has been exceptional. Having attended one in person, i believe that this is the type of training one wishes they had the opportunity to experience in their early career. The skills gained are skills i would wish upon all people stepping up to represent organisations within the industry and the agricultural sector in general.
One way we can nurture world class agricultural leaders is to create the environment and give them the skills to thrive.
Investing in the new generation of agricultural leaders can do so much more than securing the production of food and fibre. It can produce jobs, wealth and vibrant, healthy and resilient rural and regional communities.
Our partners are investing in our Young Farming Champions model that is providing the new generation of agricultural entrepreneurs with the technical experts, the networks and the skills and knowledge to support them.
There are currently many different organisations who are passionate about a bright future for Australian agriculture and together we can work more efficiently so we are presenting the right messages in the right mediums and we’re not duplicating each other’s work.
Everything the Young Farming Champions do is about Australians like you and we can't do what we do without a really strong support base. Help us to create a bright and healthy future for all Australians.
