Chamber members and guests were provided an update from Professor Hon John McVeigh on the Drought Innovation Hubs and the Stanthorpe Node that will be established at the Queensland College of Wine Tourism. This is an exciting opportunity for our community and we look forward to working with the University of Southern Queensland.
The hub will engage with farmers, traditional owners, agribusinesses, and mental health services. The hub will empower stakeholders and existing service providers to co-design drought preparedness activities for the region. Hub members will apply proven drought-resilience research on the ground. The hub will improve innovation and adoption across agriculture, industry and the community.
