I Like To See Things Grow

Something that can become frustrating in many careers is not seeing the fruits of your labour. This doesn't happen in Agrifood industries. You could be involved in the whole process from seed selection, planting, growing, harvesting, packaging and selling the final product.

What can I do now? Plant a vegie garden, find a community garden, visit a vineyard, get a Saturday morning job in a nursery, go fruit picking at an orchard, check out a wheat farm.
