By the middle of the century there will be almost 10 billion people on Earth – an awful lot of mouths to feed, especially when a warming climate makes agriculture more challenging. Scientists may save the day by helping crop species adapt and thrive as growing conditions change.

On behalf of the Australian Society of Plant Scientists , La Trobe University will hold an event that gives you the opportunity to design your very own future food through hands-on experiments, using scientific equipment and help from La Trobe University plant science researchers.
