Canberra the first stop on my journey

And what a fitting stop with the opportunity  to hear the Federal minister of agriculture  Mr Joe Ludwig  address the  ABARES conference and discuss the commitment of the government  to a national food plan. He talked about a consultation period and the importance of community feeding into the strategy. How exciting and what an opportunity . Now its up to agriculture leaders to take up the challenge to feed into this strategy and position agriculture to be part of the challenge of feeding the burgeoning world population.

Adam pictured below is studying "How to alter the public perception of Agricuture" So very similar to my topic of  "understanding the value of Agriculture".
