This Social Meetup will be hosted by Pollinators members and sponsors;
- Hope Community Services who will share their soup, and the journey of their venture “Hopes Springs Community Farm.”
- Bao Nguyen, giving a presentation on his business Sun City Produce.
Hopes Community Services are the main sponsors of this event, providing homemade soup and bread for what is sure to be a great night.
“For over a century, Hope Community Services has been providing much needed support to people affected by alcohol and other drugs, poor mental health, and socioeconomic disadvantage in Western Australia. HOPE’s dedicated staff and volunteers are fully engaged in the local communities where they live, and work with individuals, families, and communities to deliver services that best meet their needs.”
“I am a cucumber greenhouse and tomato open field farmer in Walkaway, Western Australia, and I’ve recently won the 2017 Nuffield scholarship for my field in horticulture. I investigate the field of protective cropping in horticulture (fruit and vegetables). My topic is finding efficient practices in all types of greenhouses with different levels of technology and apply them back to low tech greenhouses.”
