A paraplegic farmer’s dream to feed all
In 2015, Dr Billy Tang was involved in a serious accident which robbed him of his ability to walk. An agriculturist before the accident, Tang endured severe depression but with the love and support from his family and friends, he embraced his “new life” as a paraplegic and returned to his area of expertise in farming.
