"Approximately 90% of Gold Sweet Potatoes are grown in Bundaberg. So we are feeding the majority of Australia, just from our small town.

We really need to protect our land from gas mining - without our crops we cannot feed Australia".

Maria is from a large farming family near Bundaberg who grow sweet potatoes. Providing jobs and food for Australia is their passion.

We respect and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of First Nations peoples and their ongoing fight to protect Country.
