Young Farmers

Kojonup Group

Vision:

To connect, support, educate and inspire the next generation in rural youth

We aim to foster strong local food systems, encourage young people into agricultural careers, and build our own farm and agricultural businesses through networking and educational events and develop an inspirational virtual network of experts.

 

 

Regional Committee

How do we do this?

Our network has a multi-tiered approach:

  • A regional network that connects youth via social media (eg. Twitter and Facebook, Snapchat and WeChat groups) and events such as a Young Farmers Challenge – The Notsotough Farmers Mudder and regional mid-year social event (Ball)

and

  • Local Youth Hubs that develop grassroots activities
    • Workshops
    • Site Tours
    • Social Events
    • Host visits from other hubs

These activities are led by a volunteer committee who represent a local hub group who replicate this in their region. The South East group is based in Kojonup and the South West group is based in Manjimup and others are in development.
