Up to $50,000 grants available for horticulture events across Australia

In a move to enhance the horticulture industry’s future, the National Horticulture Roadshow has been launched to fund and promote a series of exceptional industry events across Australia.

With grant funding of up to $50,000 available for eligible organisations, these events will spotlight the latest advancements in horticultural practice and technology, aiming to build a more sustainable, resilient, and competitive sector.

Funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) and delivered by the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) and the NFF’s Horticulture Council, the Roadshow aims to support regional events that benefit participants across the horticultural supply chain and the local communities that support them.

NFF Horticulture Council Chair, Jolyon Burnett, emphasised the importance of the roadshow for the horticulture industry.

“The Roadshow will provide a unique platform for sharing knowledge, innovations, and best practices, driving the sector towards a more sustainable and prosperous future,” said Mr Burnett.

“By supporting events that bring the best practices and technologies to the forefront, we can ensure our horticulture sector remains at the cutting edge and continues to thrive.”

The Roadshow funding will enable delivery of new and existing events and activities designed to enhance the horticulture industry. The events and activities will take place over a 12-month period, from 1 August 2024 to 31 July 2025.

The National Horticulture Roadshow invites applications from eligible entities, including industry groups, research organisations, and community groups, to take advantage of this funding opportunity.

Applications close Friday 28 June 2024 at 5pm AEST. For more information on the National Horticulture Roadshow and how to apply for grant funding, visit the NFF website.
