MaiaGrazing Book Club: Why You Should Give a F**k About Farming

Watch author of ‘Why You Should Give a F**k About Farming’, Gabrielle Chan on our next Book Club

In our second Book Club, we are featuring Gabrielle Chan, author of ‘Rusted Off: Why Country Australia is Fed Up’ (September 2018) and ‘Why You Should Give A F*ck About Farming‘ (August 2021) in a candid conversation with MaiaGrazing co-founder, Bart Davidson.

Together, they discussed the inspiration behind the book and why farmers and non-farmers should get behind its message. Gabrielle shared her perspective behind regenerative agriculture, how it’s impacted her, and what’s next in her literary journey.
