Subject Matter Experts
Subject matter experts help support Action Groups by being a part of an extension activity or as part of adoption support/follow-up. Their job is to challenge or inform on their specialist subject and balance telling with listening and support.
Primary Contact Farmers
Every Action Group will nominate one farmer to be a Primary Contact Farmer. The Primary Contact Farmer is like the ‘captain’ of the sports team, representing the Action Group.
Mentors play provide the practical experience and guidance to support farm teams to make changes on-farm. The Mentor is often an experienced farmer or rural professional who acts as a sounding board for ideas and guides decision-making.
