‘Food Plant Solutions’ is based on a huge data-base created by Tasmanian agricultural scientist Bruce French and made freely available to the world-wide organisation of volunteers, Rotary International. The data-base contains comprehensive information on at least 27,000 edible plants for all countries of the world.

The speakers will illustrate how the union of knowledge from the Tasmanian data-base combined with a variety of global volunteers is making a difference in at least 28 countries where hunger and malnutrition are challenges.
