Last week our Young Farming Champions took the fresh young face of agriculture into schools participating in The Archibull Prize in Sydney and Wollongong
Cotton Young Farming Champion Emma Ayliffe shared her career journey with students and teachers at Granville South Creative and Performing Arts High School, Parramatta Public School and Kurring-gai High School.
Emma had great success with her Name the Good Bugs/Bad Bugs game turning students with no previous experience into experts in 20 mins.
She found it very rewarding to hear from the teachers of the Power of the Cow in Archibull Prize schools.
She took her hat off to the team at Parramatta Public School who have formed a partnership and are working directly with 90 students to complete the program
Horticulture Young Farming Champion Tayla Field supported by the Aussie Farmers Foundation took the story of fruit and veg into schools in the Eastern Suburbs and to Gywnneville Public School
With strong messages about eating fruit and vegetables as part of a healthy diet
Students at Little Bay Community of Schools and Gwynneville Public School (below) embrace the concept of Eating a Rainbow of fruit and vegetables every day
and the importance of traceability and biosecurity Tayla was a hit with the students
Tayla was thrilled to see the students eyes light up when she showed the level of technology available to farmers in the horticulture industry she loves
