4:20 PM CASE STUDY: Southern Cross University’s Farming Together Project: Building Farmer’s Capacity for Collaboration through Sustainable, Healthy and Profitable Partnerships

Within the first 12 months of operation, the Farming Together Project generated $20.45 million of value-add to production, and created over 131 full-time equivalent jobs. Earlier this year marked the end of the program and a new understanding of the significant gap in support for primary producers in Agriculture. Lorraine is now heading up the National Regenerative Agriculture Alliance bringing the major practicioners and academics in this space together to shape policy, inform decision makers, lead critical research and education priorities around regenerative agricultural practice.

  • The project delivered over 1,155 expert support services and registered 57 new co-operatives
  • Surpassed government’s target of 2000 producers by reaching 28,500+ primary producers, supporting 730 groups Australia wide
  • Build farmers’ capacity in collaboration including a structured Ambassadors program linking well established co-operatives with newly formed co-operatives
