Rural Edge is a not-for-profit organisation delivering highly relevant, peer to peer learning opportunities in both WA and nationally, that support primary production businesses to be innovative, competitive and profitable.
Rural Edge is very much driven by farmers, and training opportunities are for all members of the farming business and their community.
As Rural Edge is not a commercial organisation we do not compete with services that are already available. Our role is to provide services and opportunities that are not being delivered or are not readily accessible to Rural Edge. Our select team of staff, facilitators and Board members act as a support mechanism to get professional development happening where and when it is required.
Background: Partners in Grain was launched as a national organisation in 2001 and was managed in WA by a State Reference Group. In 2017 Partners in Grain became its own Incorporated Association; Partners in Grain WA and the national organisation wound down to transition to an Alliance model. In October 2019 Partners in Grain WA changed its name to Rural Edge.
