Partners and Supporting Organisations

The Invisible Farmer Project involves industry collaboration between a group of official "partners" that work across a range of fields and disciplines. In addition, the Invisible Farmer is also supported by a wide range of small and large organisations. We are continuing to seek additional support, so if your organisation is interested in becoming an official supporter, please get in touch.

Academic and Community Outcomes

The Invisible Farmer project team is made up of experts in the fields of social work, women’s history, cultural informatics, museum practice and public policy. Over the three years of the project a variety of research and community outcomes will be created. 

Significance of the Invisible Farmer Project

Why is the Invisible Farmer Project important? What does it mean to be an 'Invisible Farmer', and how can you get involved in helping to facilitate change?

Guiding Principles

Our project is underpinned by a series of guiding principles that have been developed around four major themes - sustainability, connectivity, community and capability. By following these principles we aim to honour the contributions and leadership of farm women of the past, in the present and into the future.
