FFFU is the farmer node of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA), the national food and farming educational and advocacy organisation.
Jeff’s Pow is a diverse background, spanning primary production, ecology, consulting, management and business strategy, education and research. His formal qualifications include a Master of Business Leadership from Curtin University’s Graduate School of Business, majoring in Leadership, Management and Strategy.
With his wife, Jeff is restoring the heritage-listed Southampton Homestead, a 49 hectare colonial farm near Balingup in the southwest of Western Australia.
Jeff advocates for solutions he witnessed first-hand in the USA and UK as well as those locally developed.
