Let 100 flowers really bloom: how a lack of diversity in agrifood is holding it back

Statistically speaking, my daughters are underrepresented. They’re female, regionally located, and one has a disability.  

Recently, I asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. One wants to work in an office and drink coffee “like Mummy”, and the other wants to be a doctor. 

I asked them about being a scientist, or a farmer, to which they replied “no, that’s for daddies”.
