The Visible Farmer film project has set out to discover the untold stories of the gutsy women behind our food and fibre, and the vital, innovative role they play. For the first time it gives our female farmers a contemporary, authentic voice to inspire more women to step forward and help shape the future of Australia’s food production.
From remote outback stations to urban market gardens, it’s a journey that will change your perception of who a farmer is. Each episode of this 15 part webseries is an inspiring story with passion and substance, as diverse as the industry the women are working in and the challenges they face.
This study guide on Visible Farmer is mainly aimed at junior to senior secondary school levels, with relevance within the class activities to the Australian Curriculum Cross-Curriculum Priorities of Sustainability, and one episode (Episode 7) to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. It may also be linked to the Australian Curriculum General Capabilities of: Personal and Social Capability; Critical and Creative Thinking; Ethical Understanding.
