Fruit Growers Victoria continues to support and work with local young growers with another Goulburn Valley Emerging Leaders meeting being held this week.
FGV works closely with the young growers group, regularly organising orchard walks and meetings with presentations from various industry specialists.
The next event will be at the MADEC office at 461 Wyndham St in Shepparton on Thursday, December 7.
Guest speakers will include Scott Bocskay from Sustainable Melbourne Fund, Plunkett’s orchard manager Jason Shields and MADEC’s newest member Reginna Vasi.
Ardmona grower and FGV board member Mitchell McNab is one of the leaders and supporters of the Goulburn Valley Emerging Leaders Group.
‘‘This is a great opportunity for growers to get together and hear from guest speakers that will provide information that can benefit our organisations,’’ he said.
The meeting will start at 8.30am and include a light breakfast.
