Opportunities in agriculture: the perspective of Indigenous people
Indigenous peoples are the original stewards of the land and with that, the very first agriculturalists.
In this session, facilitated by Jack Jacobs, Yindyamarra Research Fellow at Charles Sturt University, we explored how the modern application of traditional practices is creating market demand for Indigenous products, especially in the food and beverage sector. Panelists Jacob Birch, Dr Christine Pitt, Guy Royal and Suzanne Thompson also considered the barriers to scale and, if overcome, the potential to transform agrifood value chains and Indigenous communities alike.
evokeAG. 2023 examined how global agrifood innovation and tech intersect to drive change for our food, farmers, and the natural resources which sustain them.
