Youth in Agriculture - is the tide turning?

I heard an interesting interview yesterday on Radio Australia’s “Bush Telegraph” programme. After years of declining enrolments in agriculture courses at university level in the last 2 years enrolments are rising in Australian Universities– between 15 – 20 per cent this year!

There is an interview with a young ag student and it was very interesting to hear his motivations – something for us to think about when we are working to engage young people in the organic movement – it aligns beautifully with our goals.

You can read an intro and listen to the programme at the link below.

Dear Karen, Other media sources are picking up on new trends of young people in food and agriculture also. Today I saw this article entitled, These 10 Young People Are Changing Food Systems in Huge Ways in the Huffington Post that was interesting.
