NORTHAM - Growing the Growers - FREE

Interested in diversifying or a new venture?
The ANFAB series of workshops across Australia are showcasing the exciting developments and possibilities of the burgeoning native food and botanicals sector. As the extraordinary health benefits and medicinal properties of unique Australian plants are being “discovered” the market demand is enormous, (especially from the national and international pharma and nutraceutical companies) and is far outstripping supply.
There are opportunities for growing, value-adding and marketing native foods.
Come and join the discussion in NORTHAM!
