Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

Introducing The Changing Face of Farming Magazine!

A new breed of young women farmers who are shaking up the food system has been beautifully captured in a new magazine which is set to challenge stereotypes and herald in a radical shift in farming culture.

Launching today (NOV 17), the independent 160-page magazine, published by not-for-profit farmer network, Young Farmers Connect (YFC), is a completely volunteer-run initiative. YFC has a vision to create an annual publication focusing on food systems issues and farming culture, with all proceeds supporting the growth of young regenerative and small-scale farmers.

This year, the magazine titled ‘The Changing Face of Farming’ is dedicated to elevating and celebrating the roles and voices of women.

The magazine delves deeply into the worlds of women who are passionately driving the fair food movement, building resilient communities, exploring suburban farming, and feeding their community. Women who are tackling social isolation, supply chains, celebrating Indigenous culture and creating pathways for new and young farmers to join the wave of folks returning to the land.

These female farmers challenge us to reimagine our understanding of what a farmer looks like – and join a swelling chorus of voices calling for a radical shift in our attitudes toward agriculture and demanding action to combat climate change – while demonstrating that they are not waiting to get started.
