EVENTS WE HAVE RUN

Cultivate Tours

At Activate we are passionate about showcasing the abundant and extensive locally grown food and show how various foods are produced. That is the reason Cultivate tours came to be. The day tours visit a range of local producers, farms, gardens and interesting places that are located all around this region. The partnership between Activate and Wattletree Horticulture commenced in 2015 and the tours run every couple of months.

Impact Tours – Condamine Alliance

An educational bus trip provided the opportunity for members of Toowoomba’s migrant and refugee community to visit several farms and natural areas in the northern Darling Downs. Many were from African countries including South Sudan and Democratic Republic of the Congo. The aim was to increase the awareness of the farming practices and philosophy of long‐term farmers in Australia for the migrant community while also allowing them to share their farming knowledge and experiences.
