It is Leah Burnett’s second year at Farm World and she says she loves seeing all the agricultural exhibits.

Today, she is showcasing some alpacas and helping to educate other young people about the species.

Leah, of Heathmont, hopes to become a vet nurse and is currently studying at Donvale Christian College, where they have an alpaca program.


A past member of the Victorian Alpaca Youth Group, Joshua Evans has a passion for agriculture.

The 17-year-old from Mitcham gets up at 4.30am to travel to Melbourne Polytechnic in Whittlesea, where he studies agriculture.

Agriculture will get stronger as time goes on because humans can’t live without it and we will find new efficient ways to do things, he says.
