In the midst of all the excitement of Pizza Perfect I managed to interview Ashraf Tubeileh, a professor from Kemptville College, for a research story I will be writing on his research into biomass production on marginal lands.
After all this, I made it back to campus for a talk by Troy Bishopp a grazing expert from New York state. He spoke with passion about his career and life in agriculture and provided a refreshing view of the agricultural world. He asked us all what we were passionate about and encouraged us to use everything within our grasp to move towards that goal.
All in all, today was a day full of agricultural passion, farmers with a passion to teach children about farming and food, a researchers with a passion for a more sustainable fuel and a truly passionate speaker.
