Agriculture Innovation Working Group (stage 3)

Expression of interests closes Sunday 23 June 2024

We are seeking expressions of interest for individuals with a passion and interest in growing and expanding the agricultural sector in Murrindindi.

Shaping Murrindindi’s Future Project is now looking for members to form part of the Innovation Working Group in Sustainable Agriculture, Aquaculture and Horticulture to help deliver projects that will create jobs within the region.

We are looking for people who are:

  • Knowledgeable industry experts,
  • Local farmers,
  • Business owners, and
  • Interested community members.

By being part of this project, you will be supporting opportunities in agricultural practices that produce quality products, support and expand local agricultural education programs, and identify projects that will continue to support the economic and social wellbeing benefits of environmental stewardship.

Working groups will commence in July 2024 and will continue through 2024 or until the project is complete. The working groups will meet on a monthly basis.

Timeline

Stage 1 – October 2023 – Regional Context Analysis Report complete.

Stage 2 – February 2024 – Entrepreneurial Discovery Phase complete.

>> Stage 3 – May 2024 – Innovation Working Groups.

Stage 4 – March 2025 – Local Development Strategy Completion.

Selection for eligibility and inclusion on an innovation working group, will be determined based on a number of factors to ensure a broad range of voices are represented and persons with the right skill set and experience are engaged to allow for the best possible outcomes for each opportunity.  Your expression of interest does not guarantee selection on an innovation working group. Groups will be limited in size but will seek to engage additional targeted expertise as required during the duration of the working group.

We appreciate your involvement and voice in our project and look forward to further opportunities to engage with you to help Shape Murrindindi’s Future.
