A website based index of historical indigenous farming methods and forum for new and upcoming farming startups. To prepare for our future, we must look into the past. Applying indigenous Australian techniques that have been honed for millennia we can distinguish one of the largest agricultural exporters [Australia] from the rest of the world’s market to meet the rising global demand for food; both plant and animal based. we aim to provide the agricultural industry with a liaison between science and historically specialized methodology. The advantage of this distinctive service is that it also enables farmers to forum and query among themselves and within their community, while maintaining them up-to-date on the industry's latest innovations, continually supporting the most economically feasible, green and sustainable techniques, integrating perfected indigenous methodology.
We would use a collection of data relevant to; new farming techniques, developments in the agricultural science sector, new and contemporary environmental issues.

Description of Use
This book(Data set) was used to compare aboriginal farming techniques with modern day farming. This book has lots of useful information that was used to help display modern day farming techniques.
Helping a social impact ‘start up’ (small organisation) to tell their story
Small and informal community/interest groups who have formed to solve local problems need data to know if their activities are making a difference and to re-design programs. How can we help these groups tell their story through data so they can seek support (political, financial, and on the ground) by showing how their programs are working, and decide where to focus next?
Helping Start-ups and New Small Businesses in Australia
Choose one of the following questions to address:
1. What trends in business activity can help encourage self-employment through NEIS?
2. What type of NEIS businesses are being started and are successful (participated in the full 12 months of NEIS Assistance) and what can we learn from broader industry growth areas?
3. How do we encourage self-employment through greater participation in NEIS for cohorts currently underrepresented?
How do we make our digital cultural heritage collections engaging for online audiences? What experiences should we be developing beyond the search and retrieve box to visualise gallery, library and museum collections online and encourage their reuse and good storytelling?
🌟 Unearth references to Indigenous agricultural practises by searching archival records
There is increasing interest in foods that were grown on this continent for millennia, awareness of Aboriginal farming practices, and the history they reveal about Australia pre-colonisation. This challenge is to search Trove for descriptions of land care, cropping, harvesting and food storage, to add to the bank of knowledge of Aboriginal farming.
