Gippsland Women in Horticulture conference (Ellinbank)

23 November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The first-ever conference for Gippsland Women in Horticulture is being held to explore three dimensions of horticultural production: water, waste and wellness.

The morning session for the event will be devoted to individual speakers addressing the whole conference on issues of leadership, wellness and collaboration, with speakers including Nicole Griffin (Gippsland Water), Dr Nicola Watts (East Gippsland Food Cluster), Fiona Owen (Gippsland Women’s Health) and Jill Briggs (Rural Training Initiatives).

The afternoon session will be a great opportunity for group discussions on key areas of interest like irrigation, organics, biosecurity, mental health, leadership, innovation and the new generation of horticulture. These discussions will be facilitated by women with topic expertise, including AUSVEG National Manager – Science and Extension Dr Jessica Lye.

For more information, please see the event flyer. To register for the event, please see the event website.

Funding to facilitate this event has come through the VegNET project in East Gippsland as part of a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund. It is also being supported by the Commonwealth Bank, with attendees asked to contribute $30 per head to cover catering costs.
