Scholarships helping producers grow

THE owners of Killiecrankie Farm will soon be ‘‘sprout’’ producers, after winning a $1500 scholarship last month.

The Sprout program teaches Tasmanian producers about issues such as ethics, stewardship, soil health, quality and customers.

Killiecrankie owner Lee Adamson-Ringk said the scholarship would help her and husband Chris to diversify their business.

‘‘Sprout is mainly about sustainable local eating and promotion of local production on a small scale,’’ she said.

Killiecrankie nursery focuses on perennial plants, which can be planted once and will return each year, many of which are edible.

‘‘We applied from a completely different angle. We don’t grow beetroot and we don’t grow beef or anything like that, we grow plants in a commercial nursery … that have secondary uses as edible plants,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s a really easy and achievable way for people to produce some part of their meal on a daily basis using perennials.

‘‘It’s an even more simplified growing at home option for people who either don’t have time or don’t have experience to grow say an annual crop.’’

Killiecrankie is also a Christmas tree farm, and people will be able to choose their tree at the farm from the end of this month.

The scholarship program will take a year, and Killiecrankie will participate alongside five other local producers. The program will start in January.
