The OZblu® Academy is a school that will ultimately provide both in-classroom and online education facilities, coupled with practical in-field activities on the production of low-chill blueberries. The Academy has four areas of focus that align with OZblu®’s drive to create sustainable business practices and our vision of making agriculture sexy again. 


This is focused on providing financial support to previously disadvantaged individuals for undergraduate studies in the fields of agronomy, agriculture, horticulture, soil science and food technology. Post-graduate study support will be open to all students provided the research is undertaken on or concerns an OZblu® farm.


This programme provides work experience and develops valuable knowledge and skills in young people while attracting talent to the agricultural industry.


OZblu® partners with selected agricultural institutions that provide technical agricultural education. This provides the foundation of knowledge for many of the permanent staff on the OZblu® farms. As the bulk of the information on low-chill varieties expands, the OZblu® Academy will build out proprietary content that will form part of a formal OZblu® low-chill blueberry curriculum.


OZblu® currently operates in markets that are home to some of the world’s poorest communities. Low-chill blueberry production creates almost more jobs per hectare for a longer season than any other crop. These rural communities often don’t have access to much-needed services like education, which can be life changing. This leg focuses on re-purposing existing educational content and providing sustainable access to the local communities that are directly linked to OZblu® projects.

Getting involved in the OZblu® Academy is open to all licensed growers of OZblu® varieties and our customers.
