During Term 2, 2023 the Ag department were successful in establishing the first Food Ladder System in Victoria. The polycarbonate greenhouse will provide students with a controlled environment to grow plants within a six-week cycle. Food Ladder systems assist communities around the world in establishing successful social enterprises. Food Ladder systems are five times more productive than traditional farming methods when operating at full capacity. Food Ladder projects address health, education, and economic development outcomes through a multi-disciplinary approach in partnership with the local community.
Programs include vocational training, STEM education and nutrition workshops. Students will use the system to provide organic fresh produce to the community in the near future.
