Some comments from past scholars:

“Being able to meet and to form friendships with fellow students who are also passionate about agriculture and with whom I will likely cross paths in the future was another important aspect of the conference. Developing these connections and knowing who I could contact for advice or knowledge will I believe be truly invaluable.”
– Imogen Goode, La Trobe University

“The conference was a validation of all types of research, and we heard from anthropologists through to plant physiologists. It was also a great forum for sharing research ideas, and promoting and discussing interdisciplinary research models. The new friends I’ve made at the conference will be a great source of companionship and inspiration as I begin a career in research.”
– Ben McGowan, Melbourne University 2012
