Food Bowl

by Sam Leung

With global demand for food expected to double over the next forty years, farming remains a vital industry.

 This year is Australian Year of the Farmer and it’s all about celebrating the role of farmers and inspiring the next generation to live off the land.

Down in the South West this mantra has been taken up, and it’s on display this weekend at the inaugural South West FoodBowl Festival in Nannup.

Youth Reporter Sam Leung spoke to Festival Committee Member, and Margaret River tomato and cauliflower grower, Jo Wren  and asked her why people should buy local.
