break new ground
FOUR young people from
Whites Valley are the
inaugural recipients of the
$10,000 Willunga Farmers Market
Young Farmer Scholarship.
The group -- Jay Kimber, Emmanuel
Marquis, Alex Steimanis and Aidan
Jones (pictured) -- entered the con-
test as a collective and have already
broken first ground on the property
where they will farm heirloom veg-
etables using permaculture guidelines
and organic principles.
Chairperson Steve Scown said
the market was giving them $3000
worth of small business and
agricultural training, and a cash
component of $7000 to provide for
essentials such as seeds, tools, land
rental and insurance.
"Our aim is to ensure the next
generation of Australia's farmers
have access to the support they need
to create a long, viable career out of
farming," he said.
