In 2018, Tom Forrest was awarded the first-ever Churchill Fellowship for cannabis agronomy. “I was fortunate to visit 8 countries, 28 cities and around 50 cannabis cultivation sites between April and August 2019.
This included visits to hi-tech sealed environment glasshouses, ‘pharma’ grade indoor facilities, traditional glasshouses, organic and outdoor broad-acre cannabis cultivation sites.
The purpose of this trip was to learn from existing worldwide approaches to cannabis agronomy, and share this knowledge to help our local industry grow successfully,” said Tom.
For many years now the Churchill Trust has welcomed sponsorships and bequests from individuals and organisations of goodwill who wish to support passionate Australians striving for excellence.
