About this event

This immersive, hybrid, cross-curricular, agricultural learning program including a one-day face-to-face event hosted at The University of Melbourne (Parkville campus). This program is fully funded thanks to the generous contribution of The William Buckland Foundation.
HarvestED connects Victorian students across the State virtually and an in-person event for collaborative, investigative, and innovation-driven learning. Students explore agricultural opportunities and challenges and develop their own solutions to agricultural issues.
Students will meet and hear from agricultural experts and professionals across the state, Australia and the Asia-Pacific region and from a range of agricultural industries.
HarvestEd is agricultural education for global citizens. Students hear from a range of guest speakers, experts and professionals. They explore current opportunities and challenges in agriculture and develop their own solutions and action-oriented ideas. Students will explore cross-curricular content in agriculture such as sustainability, environmental consciousness, technology, automation, ethics and urbanisation. 
The Phases of Learning:
  1. Past, Present and Future Farming - Exploring agricultural industries past, present and the potential of the agricultural future in Victoria, Australia and the Asia-Pacific
  2. Connecting Communities - Hearing firsthand from agricultural professionals, experts and guests - students collaborate and reflect on the opportunities, insights, and problems worth tackling.
  3. Seeding Change - Using design-thinking processes, teams generate ideas to problems or opportunities in agriculture that they have explored through the program, developing initial prototypes of solution-oriented ideas
  4. Harvesting Potential - Students pitch their prototype ideas to each other and a guest panel for feedback and further actions.
