Agriculture plays a vital role in Tasmania, contributing to our social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Agriculture utilises new technology, employs thousands of people and keeps many rural communities alive. Tasmanian produces quality fresh food that Tasmanian families and those across the country and world enjoy.
Teaching food and fibre can seem overwhelming when you are not an expert in the area. Rest assured you do not need to be! Many of the units available are designed in such a way that you, as the teacher are a co-learner, provided with teacher notes, plus readily available resources that are mainly web-based. Most importantly, you will find that you learn with the students and make genuine discoveries with them.
In Tasmania, Agricultural education is underpinned by the Tasmanian Agricultural Education Framework You may find the planning guides useful to show where food and fibre sits within the curriculum - Food and Fibre planning guides
