Current programs


AUSVEG VIC’s Schools on Farms program is proud to partner with Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority (PPWCMA) to deliver a new cross-industry Farms2Schools program.

Farms2Schools, coordinated by PPWCMA is a new and innovative Victorian Government-funded program which will provide students with insights into how agricultural products get from the paddock to their plate.

Schools from across the Port Phillip and Western Port region will be teamed with local growers who will share their experiences and knowledge through online learning and incursions and excursions.

Expressions of interest are now being accepted from Victorian vegetable growers that would like to be involved. Call Joy Pedersen on 0413 760 776 or click here to fill out your expression of interest.
