Farming Champions will hold the Farmer on Your Plate event on Saturday, March 29 in Forrest Place.

Spokeswoman Mary Nenke said the event aimed to put agriculture high on the political menu.

‘Everyone attending the day will be encouraged to record their participation, sign up to be a farming champion and to table what actions they would like to see with regards to improving rural WA,’ she said.

‘We want all Australians to champion farming. It isn’t a sympathy vote for poor farmers, it’s about poor Australia if we lose our farmers.’

Gingin vegetable grower and Vegetables WA president Maureen Dobra will be at the event, which also includes a performance by the Royal Australian Navy’s Admirals Own Big Band.
