We took the scenic route home and called into The Stick Shed at Murtoa.
The Stick Shed was built over four months in the 1940s as an emergency grain store during WWII. It is the only remaining shed of this type today and covers 16,000m2 under roof (or 1.6 hectares)!
Next door, is the current GrainCorp Murtao Grain Receival Centre which can hold up to 400,000 tonnes, making it the largest inland receival centre in Australia.
We had a great week in Victor Harbour at the National Agricultural Educators Conference.
We enjoyed meeting ag teachers from across Australia. And exploring the diversity of agriculture on the Fleurieu Peninsula from sheep, dairy and seafood, to mushrooms, olives and berries.
Wishing all our friends and followers a wonderful festive season filled with love and laughter... and a little LEGO!

Great to speak with VCAL Agriculture students at Galen Catholic College in Wangaratta today about careers in ag, and our Nuffield Australia journey.
It's World Food Day!
Today also kicks off the World Food Forum virtually and at the FAO Headquarters in Rome. Our travel plans have changed, so we're joining in from home (through the night taking into account timezones).
It's National Science Week!
This year's theme is Innovation: Powering Future Industries, and agriculture is always innovating from drones to Smart Farms, from soil moisture sensors to driverless tractors. These innovations not only improve food and fibre production around the world, but drive innovation in other sectors too!
We've been wrapping up our time in the USA by visiting some summer agriculture fairs (shows)!
We've just spent three days exploring Indiana State Fair and learning about their year-round ag education programs. And along with ferris wheels and carousels, we did spot some LEGO on the fairgrounds too!
