A farmer, an academic, a disability advocate, a law and politics student and a scientist will join Greens Senator for Western Australia Scott Ludlam in the race for a senate seat on April 5.

Senator for Western Australia Scott Ludlam said he was proud to stand alongside passionate, dedicated Greens candidates that represent a broad range of skills, knowledge and backgrounds.

"It is so encouraging to have a strong team out campaigning during this election who care deeply about disability care, farming, health, education and justice," he said.

"With such a strong calibre in the Greens team, our message of caring for people and our environment will be heard in almost every neighbourhood across WA."

The team consists of Christine Cunningham, who is a senior education lecturer at Edith Cowan University and is a co-convener of the Australian Greens.

Cunderdin wheat and sheep farmer Ian James will campaign for genetically modified free farms and highlight the plight of farming communities.

Jordon Steele-John worked with the Commissioner for Children and Young People in WA on a community development project and will campaign for a fairer society. He is also part of the Rockingham Disability Access Reference Group and campaigns for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Sarah Nielsen-Harvey grew up in Merredin and is studying law and political science, and social and environment activist Judith Cullity will campaign on renewable energy, sustainable public transport and preserving Perth's urban bushland.
