George the Farmer The Island of Big Ideas


Dr Ruby hosts an island tour showcasing some of the ways farmers are improving their soil and environment for the future. But could a knock to the head of journalist, John Dunny, stop the good news spreading to the mainland?

Food and farming systems are so incredibly important, and this story brings them to life and leaves the reader feeling inspired. An accessible and engaging book for both kids and parents, on the most important of topics of producing food and having a healthy planet."
