Supporting Victorian farmers and boosting our exports
Dr Natascha Klocker, along with colleagues Dr Olivia Dun and Prof. Lesley Head, has been working with community partners in Mildura on the Sunraysia Burundian Garden pilot project. The success of this pilot has culminated in a $600,000 funding allocation to our community partner organisation, Food Next Door, from the Victorian Government. The funding is for the establishment of a larger community farm that will provide migrants, refugees and other marginalised community members with access to farmland on which to grow food using regenerative farming practices. Find out more on this project here.
