On today’s episode I sit down with University of King’s College student and global food ambassador, Cassie Hayward. Cassie spreads her time across a number of different projects and passions. She is a student leader, the rugby captain at King’s, and a local and international food systems advocate. She is involved with 4H, Food Secure Canada, and a fresh new project, Agrikua! We talk about each of these initiatives, the gifts and challenges of being a young leader, and the emerging feminist movement in agriculture, specifically in Kenya, where her and her Agrikua are doing on the ground research! The introduction music today is from a Hamilton band with an East coast vibe, that is Poor Angus folks. This is farm talk radio, keep your shovel in the ground and stay tuned for more farm talk!
Agrikua’s so fresh that Cassie and the team are still working on their website but check Agrikua out on facebook, @agrikua on twitter, and @agrikuaplatform on instagram
