If you are one of them, please lend your support and help us ensure that schools that may not have sufficient funding can access this education unit free of charge.

In kind support

Local Liverpool Plains businesses and farmers have been generous in supporting our Farming Community Sponsorship program. At present, together they support thirty schools each year with unlimited use of the Food Bowl Connection unit for free. This program has the added benefit of giving schools their own farmer to liaise with during the unit.

If you are a Liverpool Plains business or individual that would like to help the next generation, either through a financial donation or through hands-on experience, please contact us.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our photographer friends Sally Alden of  Sally Alden Photography and Manus McFadyen for the use of their work across our website and resources.

Gifts from the Majestic Liverpool Plains Food Bowl

Research-artist Dr Robbie van Hemert's original artwork adorns a selection of giftwares that you can purchase here.

"We may be a small rural community but by sending transportable and meaningful 'thank you' gifts from the Majestic Liverpool Plains Food Bowl of NSW, we can connect more people to this precious place. Why?

Because at Food River Station we believe that connecting with a place is fundamental to caring from it."

I have really enjoyed learning about the Liverpool Plains as I didn’t know where it was or what was produced there prior to this unit. Now I know all of the different crops that are grown in the plains such as canola, sunflower, wheat, corn and sorghum. These are then used to make many of our foods that we eat daily.
