The Country Life, rolled out as part of the FarmEd school incursion program by the Royal Agricultural Society, aims to raise awareness of where our food comes from, sustainability, the use of technology in farming to maintain and support food production.

The audience followed the journey of city girl Janet as she learned about different aspects of farming.

President of the RAS of WA Rob Wilson said the importance of educating youngsters about agriculture was one of priority for the organisation.

“It is important children know where our food originates from. This entertaining and lively program teaches children about the significance of agriculture to our lives, our future and our economy,” he said.
