What’s Needed

The Yarra Valley is one of Victoria’s most valuable, attractive and well visited regions. It is renowned for its rural landscapes, food, wine, forests, rivers and wildlife.

Over many decades governments and the local community have worked to secure and maintain these values. Even with their fertile soils, life on Yarra Valley farms is presenting challenges – the scarcity of water, the rising costs of energy and transport and growing community expectations to farm sustainably.
