Then Max Cotton is back with the third part of our series where we see how he’s coping with the self-sufficient life style on his small holding in the UK. And finally we rejoin our ongoing series with the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development - this time we speak with Nikita Eriksen-Hamel, Deputy Director of Agriculture and Food Systems for Global Affairs Canada.
