This will be focused on providing financial support to previously disadvantaged individuals for undergraduate studies in the fields of agronomi, 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 communities often don’t have access to much-needed services like education. United Exports will focus on re-purposing existing educational content and providing sustainable access to the local communities that are directly linked to OZblu projects.
OZblu will partner with selected agricultural institutions that provide technical agricultural education. These institutions will provide 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.
