YAPS (Young Agricultural Professionals)

This group formed via funding received from Caring for our Country's Community Action Grant project dubbed “Farmer Wants a Life” was designed to encourage and support young farmers (under 45) and their families to come together and network - “Farmers talking to Farmers”. The group aims to encourage more young farmers to become involved with Landcare, showcase “best practice” properties, promote and ground truth these practices with knowledge sharing opportunities for potential greater adoption.

Each of these get-togethers involves sharing a meal together, with plenty of time for social activities.  Partners and children are welcome.
