This is focused on providing financial support to previously disadvantaged individuals for undergraduate studies in the fields of agronomy, agriculture, horticulture, soil science and food technology. Post-graduate study support will be open to all students provided the research is undertaken on or concerns an OZblu® farm.
Low-chill blueberry production creates almost more jobs per hectare for a longer season than any other crop. These rural communities often don’t have access to much-needed services like education. United Exports focuses on re-purposing existing educational content and providing sustainable access to the local communities that are directly linked to OZblu® projects.
OZblu® partners with selected agricultural institutions that provide technical agricultural education. This provides the foundation of knowledge for many of the permanent staff on the OZblu® farms.
Sport forms an integral part of education. OZblu growers already support a number of community-based sporting initiatives. Support on a social and educational level will form part of the foundation of the OZblu Academy.
