Get down to Camperdown for this monthly innovation talk series on farming. Involving local and young regenerative farmers, innovative people working in food, food waste and sustainability, Pocket City Farm's goal is to create a community of mindful humans through connectivity and shared experience. They believe that real-life interaction, conversations and local Australian stories is just they key. To celebrate International Women's Day, they'll be hosting some of the most impressive, trailblazing women behind small scale, organic agriculture and ethical food. The discussion will be focused around what these incredible women are doing with their work and empowering women and young girls to pursue a career in what has been generalised as a masculine gendered field for years.
