VegNET Victoria Gippsland has been extended !

It’s been more than three years since the launch of the National Vegetable Extension Network which aims to effectively extend important research based information to growers to help them grow their businesses.

The project to build capacity in vegetable businesses across Gippsland has been a pivotal part of a renaissance in the origins of food and fibre.

VegNET Victoria Gippsland has achieved success well beyond the VegNET project parameters because Gippsland growers care not only about their levy paying neighbours, but all those along the value chain.

Levy payers of today and tomorrow have been involved in events, taken part in training and proactively networked because they know “we are all in this together.“

VegNET Victoria Gippsland has actively supported diversity and inclusion, most notably through the Gippsland Women in Horticulture Conferences in 2017 and 2018, where women shared knowledge, developed skills and gained new experiences to support their increasing and active participation along the supply chain.

An indelible footprint has been stamped in Gippsland by the VegNET initiative, and it is hoped that industry leaders celebrate its success and build the VegNET brand for every grower in Australia in the interests of a prosperous, passionate industry that is ready for the future.
