Educating Farmers of the Future
Insights from Slow Food Australia National Conference and Slow Food Brisbane engagement with local producers:
Slow Food Brisbane’s leader, Noelene McBride, recently attended the Slow Food Australia National Conference in the Hunter Valley, where Darren Bayley, Principal of Tocal College spoke about aspects of educating farmers of the future. In particular, he emphasised the importance of small, local producers developing skills to tell the story of their produce. An example of this aspect of farming was evident when Slow Food Brisbane participated in the recent Pullenvale Seasonal Harvest Farmers’ Market and committee member Louise Thomas had the opportunity to speak with a local producer and hear the story of her family farm and its produce.
