Young Farmers Ministerial Advisory Council
29/6/2015


The Victorian Government is establishing a new Young Farmers Ministerial Advisory Council.

The Minister for Agriculture is seeking Expressions of Interest  for the new Young Farmers Ministerial Advisory Council.

Nine passionate candidates, including the Chair, representing the diverse breadth of agriculture professions, industries and regions are being sought to be a part of the Council.

The Council will advise government about practical actions and opportunities to attract and retain young people in agriculture, to help maintain a sustainable and profitable sector.

The Council will be a visible and important voice for young people in agriculture to government and help shape future support for young people on the land and in the agriculture sector more broadly.

Over the next two years the Council will engage with young people in agriculture, consider research and talk to experts to identify practical actions and opportunities for government support and assistance.

The expression of interest is open from 26 June 2015 to 19 July 2015. The application information can be found on the Young Farmers website.

Further information: Samantha Longley, Young Farmer Coordinator

The NRWC recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as First Nation traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present.
