The program involves the development and delivery of a training package, raising the awareness of environmentally and socially responsible production.
With training materials aligned to a unit of competency of the ‘National Seafood Training Package’, participating farmers will be able to demonstrate a commitment to responsible and sustainable farming practices. Block chain technology will be investigated, as a means to transfer information from the farm, to the consumer. This may include details on provenance, farmer values, and their formal recognition as a Master harvester. Public events will be organised as a means to connect recognised farmers with their local community.
This project is supported by OceanWatch Australia, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
