Schools on Farms
is an AUSVEG VIC developed concept.

AUSVEG VIC proudly partnered with industry groups to put together this incredibly successful pilot program. Students from two schools in Melbourne visited some of the city’s leading vegetable farms in late 2019. They then visited the supermarket and saw the product placed on the store’s shelf.

• Promote community engagement with food producers.
