Meet Aimee Snowdon – NSW/ACT RIRDC Rural Women’s Award Alumni Member

The RIRDC Rural Women’s Award has been running for 21 years and acknowledges women’s leadership capacity in effecting change and influence through connecting and collaborating.  Each week we will be featuring an Alumni member who has a keen interest in contributing and sharing their information and expertise across government, industry and community.  We invite you to consider what opportunities are available to engage these women in your activities, such as speaking opportunities, workshops presentations, board and committee vacancies.

Aimee lives on her family’s irrigation farm near Tocumwal in the southern Riverina. She completed her university studies in Agricultural Business Management through Charles Sturt University (CSU) and after working locally in accounting and irrigation, she returned home to the family farm in 2014.

Aimee’s affinity with agriculture resulted from growing up on the land. She is passionate about agriculture and excited to be working in an industry that is innovative, diverse and creative.

As a farm girl, Aimee understands the need to promote and create awareness of the agricultural industry in order to engage with future generations.

Using her creativity and passion for agriculture Aimee is sharing the story of farming in a creative and fun way through her Little Brick Pastoral initiative. She celebrates Australian agriculture through unique photos of a Lego® farmer and hopes that by telling a positive story she will start important conversations around food and fibre production.
