In & Out Day - Ross
We have graduated our 2018 cohort and met our 2019 Sprout Producer Program scholarship recipients at our annual In & Out day in Ross this year. It is always fantastic to see the two cohorts of farmers get together, meet, learn about each other and share some laughs over great local produce. We welcome Minister Guy Barnett for part of the day too, where he showed his support for the small producer sector of the state, and heard some of the stories from our graduating farmers about their experience in the program and their achievements.
(L-R: Michael Layfield, Lauren Layfield, Minister Barnett, Liz Mahnken, Tony Scherer, Michaela Lamprey, Fiona Hume)
