PEV 2020

Thanks to the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan there is funding available for students from the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine to visit Fiji with Project Everest and be involved in the FarmEd program.


FarmEd

The FarmEd program is a leading example of the social enterprises created by Project Everest to achieve the UN Sustainable Development goals. FarmEd’s purpose is simple: solve world hunger through accessible agricultural expertise. Through accessible agricultural advice, increased economic opportunities in local communities can be achieved through the development and optimisation of farmland and the associated supply chain.
