Shaping the future of sustainable agriculture

Dr Anika Molesworth is a leading expert on climate change and food systems reliance. Her extensive research into international agricultural development has made her a frequently sought-after speaker.

After witnessing her family’s sheep farm in New South Wales undergo a decade-long drought, Anika was inspired to explore alternative farming systems that can help vibrant rural communities enforce sustainable agriculture.
