HarvestEd











AEF’s 2021 HarvestEd Geelong program will give students collaborative, investigative, and innovation-driven experiences, linking them to experts and professionals across agricultural industries.


The program draws on the interests and capacities of students and fosters understanding about the links between regional Australia and the Asia marketplace.

This cross curricular program aims to equip students with a range of knowledge and skills that enhance both academic skills and personal growth.

The HarvestEd Geelong program will involve eight sessions spread over three terms. These will be a mix of online and face-face workshops, in partnership with Geelong sites such as the National Wool Museum.

HarvestEd is open to students from Years 8-10 in the Geelong region. The program may form part of a school curriculum elective program, careers pathway program or through the VET or VCAL program.

Proudly supported by the William Buckland Foundation, there is no cost to schools or students to be involved in the program.

HarvestEd will commence in Term 2 2021.
