In celebration of National Ag Week 2021, PIEFA will be hosting twenty nation-wide live Farmer Time sessions for students from Foundation to Year 12, showcasing producers from a broad range of food and fibre industries.

The focus of these sessions is to assist students to develop an understanding of the importance of Australia's primary industries.


Join us for this online session, where we chat with experienced avocado farmer, Steve Marshall. Farmer Steve will discuss avocado production in Victoria and how this differs to warmer climate production of avocados. 

Farmer Steve will explain how he utilised Design Thinking to solve problems relating to his packaging for distribution, and will share insights into life as an avocado producer. 

This session is designed for students in Years 5 and 6 and will run for approximately 15 minutes.
