There’s a new way for banana growers to share ideas, ask advice and catch up – all without leaving the farm.
The Thirsty Banana is a private Facebook group just for growers, designed to function almost as an online pub. In the past you might have stopped by your neighbour’s place or popped down to the local to catch up over a beverage. Unfortunately biosecurity and the pressures of modern farming mean this hasn’t been as easy – until now.
The group, which can be found on the Australian Banana Growers’ Council Facebook page, is the perfect place to celebrate your success, post a cracking photo or find answers to your niggling questions.
