Welcome to Southern Harvest
Southern Harvest is a farmer led, member organisation focused on growing local and regional food communities in the ACT and South East NSW. The Purpose of the Association is “to foster the sustainable growth and availability of local produce within the Southern Harvest region” through market opportunities, education, networking and advocacy.
The objectives of the association are:
To support healthy relationships between growers, producers, consumers and community.
To develop partnerships with like-minded organisations, local government and community groups to help facilitate the uptake of local produce.
To facilitate access to education that supports the sustainable growth of local food and agricultural systems.
To develop a strong regional identity around regenerative agriculture, which provides opportunities for enterprise diversity and adds value to regional produce.
To advocate for equitable access to high quality local produce for consumers and sales opportunities and scale-appropriate regulation for producers.
