The investment is remarkable. And with that the innovation in their farming practices can filter throughout the world.

We took in the Doha skyline with a Dhow Cruise, and a swim in the Persian Gulf.

We were welcomed to Biocarve Seeds with beautiful Marigold Garlands.
The next stop on the Nuffield Australia Global Focus Program was southern India around Madurai.
