The program aims to enhance the capacity of women in vegetable & fruit growing and production businesses, and to encourage them to engage with their own and related industries.

Fifteen women from across Australia will be selected to become part of a new network of like-minded women that are passionate about their community and industry.

Participants will bring a range of experiences from a variety of regions and cultural backgrounds.
