We are thrilled to have arranged for 20 Victorian students to attend this summit and report back to Career Harvest.

Tickets are reasonably priced for farmers/producers and VFF/RASV/VAC members at $220 including GST, with professionals at $440 including GST; this has been done to allow greater affordability for SME farmers/producers.
