Clare’s journey began from humble beginnings, when she planted her first vegetable garden with her father as a child.

As her life experiences have evolved over the years to the here and now, her passion for growing food and to share the joys of connecting with family and nature through food growing, is evident.

Clare’s motivation to challenge the mindset of others about the foods they eat and encouraging a passion for growing food, is without compromise.

Learning the skills from generations before her, Clare believes that the benefits of encouraging our kids to grow food and learn more about the foods we actually eat is imperative for our ongoing health, wellbeing and connection – connection with those closest to us and with a world that relies on us to start paying attention.

As a farmer, author, cafe owner, primary producer and city dweller, Clare’s mission is to highlight the importance of growing food, supporting local and ensuring that we eat to live, not live to eat.
