We're not the first to say 'WTF?!'

That's where's the food without the farmers of course..

With an ageing farmer population and a growing number of young people in urban areas interested in food production - we have a real opportunity to not only green our cities, but produce fresh, local food and provide meaningful employment and training to an enthusiastic demographic. Farmer incubation programs whether formal or informal are the vital step to ensure skills aren't lost from one generation to the next.
