The Future of Native Crop Farming in Diversified Production System 

An opportunity to join us at our FDF project site to participate in a workshop to explore the importance of native crops in a diversified farming system and learn from the project site: establishment to crop planting to harvesting of selected native crops.

The University of Melbourne team, led by Associate Professor Dorin Gupta, will be joined by project partner and Indigenous farmer Gay Baker, who is hosting the trial site at her farm.
