Agriculture advisory group in need of members

FARMERS, growers and fishers with a serious passion about the future of their industries will be given the chance to have their say and make a difference.

The Fraser Coast Regional Council is calling for nominations from the public and council members to join the 2015 Advancing Agriculture Advisory Group.

Given the unstable nature of agriculture, almost every farmer or fisher will have come across some problems, and sometimes the hardest part is finding the solution.

The group was formed in 2013 to give farmers and fishers a stronger voice in regards to issues affecting primary production and agriculture on the Fraser Coast.

Most people living and working on the land understand each other's hardships all too well. However the problems they face may not be known by people in other industries.

Members of AAAG are asked to commit to a full year of group meetings.

Nominations must be sent to the council by noon on Friday, February 27.
