AgConnectWA

Engage, connect, represent, educate, listen, advocate and support.

The aim of AgConnectWA is to engage, connect, represent, educate, listen, advocate and support young people throughout the agricultural industry and communities, in order to address challenges they face, and harness opportunities that are available to them.

AgConnectWA recognises that in addition to young farmers, there is a myriad of young people in rural, regional and metropolitan areas with a passion for agriculture and progressing rural communities.

Each year, AgConnectWA conducts several events that aim to bring together young people to form long lasting friendships and to provide advice and assistance relating to the agricultural industry.

Membership for AgConnectWA costs $65 and gives you access to a wide range of benefits and expert information.
