Women in Horticulture

Women in Horticulture - Virtual Bus Tour

Last week Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers teamed up with Growcom's Michelle Hasse to deliver on a Women in Horticulture event with a difference. Due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, the team who would normally tour regional farms to speak with growers and see firsthand some of the initiatives and changes each farm has implemented changed the structure so attendees could still get the most out of the day and showcased the farms by a pre recorded virtual tour.

The virtual tour focussed on reef water quality and monitoring which gave the women a chance to look at practices changes on farm.

The event took place at HSG at the Gardens and was well received by the 35 women in attendance.
