Agribusiness, Community & Food Systems projects
Our team has extensive experience in business and agribusiness and we have been involved in a number of agribusiness ventures over the last 20 years. Our experience includes strategic planning, business evaluation and structuring, project budgeting and planning, marketing and operational management. We have experience in both the profit and the “for purpose” sectors.
We have been involved in a number of regional and alternative food system projects and have extensive experience in farmers markets, community-based cooperatives as well as starting new regional food-based ventures. We were part of the consulting team that developed the Sustainable Agriculture Strategy, a major project for Tweed Shire Council, NSW and we have a strong understanding of food systems in Australia. Finally we also have strong experience in rural community facilitation and sustainable agriculture project management and support.

Research & Development
David’s knowledge surrounding soil health and in particular biological function in soil is second to none. David has an excellent teaching style that works well with adults which gives you the right mix to achieve good outcomes.
David’s formal training as an agroecologist gives him a good understanding of how most types of agriculture work in different environments so he is able to talk to farmers on their level enabling greater understanding of the information he is trying to convey.
David has advised many members of our group and he is considered our ‘go to’ person whenever we are planning projects or field days. He has conducted several field days and workshops for our group and remains top of list whenever we are planning an event.
On a personal note I have known and worked with David for the last few years. We have presented at many workshops and field days and he is still teaching me new things every time. It is a pleasure to work with David and I look forward to his continued support of myself and our group.
