Produce It. Protect It.
Food and fibre education for Victorian primary schools.
This project is a collaboration between Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia (PIEFA) and the Victorian Farmers Federation. The project supports teaching and learning of the food and fibre curriculum through: VIC Farmer Time, Free Incursions, and Professional Development and Curriculum Consultation.
The Virtual Classroom offers online resources which can be utilised by students within the classroom or during remote learning to explore food and fibre through multimodal activities.
Activities with the 15 Minute Farmer Time symbol are part of our featured 15 Minute Farmer Time series and provide students with the opportunity to hear first-hand from Victorian farmers to learn all about how our food and fibre is produced.

Professional Development and Curriculum Consultation
Guidance on materials and learning opportunities that complement units of work or individual lesson plans can be provided by Education Officers. There are a variety of resources available to support and effectively develop programs within schools. Education Officers can provide consultation for teachers – within schools or online – to highlight activities appropriate to a school’s curriculum. Online courses will be available for teacher professional development throughout the year and can be accessed through Primezone Academy when available.
