Who is Sprout Tasmania?
Sprout Tasmania is a not-for-profit that is volunteer supported. We strive to change the conversation about local food systems and support local producers to grow and farm ethically and sustainably for their community & the environment.
We have one passion, one purpose –
We are Tasmania’s only grassroots group helping aspiring farmers turn their ideas into thriving, sustainable small businesses. Since commencing in 2011, Sprout has supported the success of a wide variety of entrepreneurs, from all walks of life and all over the state.
Our programs are practical, useful and successful and offers real-world learning, networking and growth opportunities. Backed by a wealth of expertise, Sprout’s board of directors and many volunteer supporters, we provide a year-round calendar of events for small producers and growers to connect, learn and grow.
outcomes from the work we do

We represent our members within political, economic and social systems, taking issues and ideas to the table.
