We are really lucky that Sahar Hasnain has eagerly agreed to talk to our LIGC students this year. Sahar has taken over at IFSTAL covering for Dr Bex White who talked to our students last year and is currently on maternity leave.
IFSTAL is all about teaching people about where our food comes from and how it gets to us - and what we need to do to make sure our food keeps on coming. Take a look!
This is Sahar's biog. We are really looking forward to talking to her.
