Project Description


A website based index of historical indigenous farming methods and forum for new and upcoming farming startups. To prepare for our future, we must look into the past. Applying indigenous Australian techniques that have been honed for millennia we can distinguish one of the largest agricultural exporters [Australia] from the rest of the world’s market to meet the rising global demand for food; both plant and animal based. we aim to provide the agricultural industry with a liaison between science and historically specialized methodology. The advantage of this distinctive service is that it also enables farmers to forum and query among themselves and within their community, while maintaining them up-to-date on the industry's latest innovations, continually supporting the most economically feasible, green and sustainable techniques, integrating perfected indigenous methodology.


Data Story


We would use a collection of data relevant to; new farming techniques, developments in the agricultural science sector, new and contemporary environmental issues.
