I am interested in all things related to food and sustainable and healthy food systems - from urban agriculture, community gardens, permaculture, wholefoods (including the lost art of preparing food using traditional methods to increase nutrient intake) . From paddock to plate I am passionate about creating a new paradigm to transform societies and ourselves towards this goal. I believe that a sustainable food system must be health promoting as well as encouraging fairness and equity so that ecologically produced food can be sourced by anyone. With my background in tertiary education I am also interested with how we can train future food leaders and I am excited about the possibilities that this can bring
