    This is a wonderful alliance that will help build another piece of the bridge over the rural-urban divide. For those who are keen to understand the bigger scale of Australian agriculture and how it contributes to feeding Australians and our global community check out which offers city families the opportunity to connect with, work with and learn from a farming family in the spirit of fun,friendship and understanding. The event takes place over the weekend of May 29/30 – so if you are a passionate farming family or keen city family have a look at the website and register to participate. Some of the best things in life happen around the kitchen table – and that is part of FarmDay!!
