The ‘Ideas that Grow’ podcast is bought to you by Rural Leaders. Our mission is to grow world class leaders through the Nuffield NZ Farming Scholarship and Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme.

The podcast series draws on the insights from innovative rural leaders, to help plant ideas that grow, so our regions can flourish.

All guests are arranged by Rural Leaders. Ideas That Grow is presented in association with our supporting partner Farmer’s Weekly.

And in case you are wondering, Pāhautea is a maori word, meaning ‘flourishing.’
