This image is one of seven photographs of Lisa Sartori at Leongatha South, Victoria, taken by Catherine Forge on 22 November 2016 as part of the Invisible Farmer Project.
This particular image shows Lisa Sartori kneeling down next to a tree. The tree represents the "tree of life," which is the object Mrs Satori chose to highlight during her interview.
Lisa Sartori is one of the owners and operators of Dirty Three, an 8-acre vineyard in South Gippsland specialising in Pinot Noir and Riesling. With her husband Marcus bringing 20 years of experience in the wine industry to the table, the couple relocated to the area from the Yarra Valley to start their own business and be closer to family. Lisa speaks passionately about land use, consumer-producer relationships, climate change, viticulture, and the importance of family and community within the farming industry.
This photograph is related to four interviews that were conducted in Gippsland in 2016, with support from the Australia Women in Agriculture Inc. These interviews and photographs form part of Museums Victoria's Invisible Farmer Project Collection. The Invisible Farmer Project was the largest ever study of Australian women on the land, uncovering the histories and stories of Australian women in agriculture. It began as a pilot project (2015-2016) and evolved into a three year (2017-2020) nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academic, government and cultural organisations, funded by the Australian Research Council.
