Future Farmers is a celebration and promotion of sustainable agricultural practices as a viable and worthy pursuit now and into the future, recognising the crucial role that farmers play in creating and supporting healthy communities and ecosystems.
The evening will centre around a panel discussion chaired by Chris of Fair Food CERES, talking with urban market gardeners, farming cooperatives and sustainable growers about their experiences of getting started in the industry, the hurdles they’ve faced and what it takes to find your feet.
Talking with us on our panel of sustainable farmers are Emily Connors from Joe's Market Garden, Madelaine Scott from Madelaine's Eggs, Yellow Box Growers and Paul Miragliotta from Farmer Incubator + Day's Walk Farm, who all have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share about getting started in agriculture.
We are also excited to announce Carolyn Suggate, founder of the newly formed Organic and Regenerative Investment Cooperative, as our keynote speaker for the evening. For more information on the fantastic work that ORICoop is doing, check out: https://www.organicinvestmentcooperative.com.au/
The talks will be followed by plenty of live music, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.
