"Students’ knowledge needs to be across the many ways to practise agriculture. These range from organic and regenerative agricultural practices, focused on replicating natural processes, through to technology-driven precision farming and the emerging trend of using locally sourced inputs in circular farming systems."
Two weeks left to enter the Rangelands Living Skin Artwork competition!
The Rangeland Living Skin project is a collaboration between scientists, farming families and other stakeholders to demonstrate improved productivity in the NSW rangelands. The project will focus on soil, plants, animals and people as the living skin of the rangelands.
Open to all Western LLS Region primary school students, the Rangeland Living Skin artwork competition allows students to design a logo that shows how important our soil is for our plants, animals and communities. There are amazing prizes to be one, including a soil kit for each winner’s school.
Are you a teacher who cares about engaging the next generation in agriculture? Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia (PIEFA) is seeking ways in which they can better target programs and resources towards the changing needs of teachers, especially in light of COVID-19.
This understanding this is key to providing teachers with up to date and engaging ways to support food and fibre education in the classroom. Find their survey here: ow.ly/oXMS50DB2yv... See MoreSee Less
