SINEAD FENTONproject lead & head grower

I'm a former geologist who used to explore new territories for minerals and a ex-techie having worked with various software houses. I always struggled with how linear my work felt, in systems that worked in isolation with no regard to our wider ecosystem. Nothing felt circular or 'sustainable'. 

A lot of soul searching and I came to Audacious Veg as a volunteer back in 2016, in it's early incarnation and knew it was for me. I could be outdoors, constantly learning within a mindblowingly complex system that's ever evolving. Taking my passion for food, nature, science and all things peculiar, I hung up my software and geology hat and traded it in for a food growing hat. 

I took over Audacious Veg in 2018 and have since been channeling my energy into trying to make a positive change, from the ground up!

ADAM SMITH grower & numbers director

I started my journey into growing when I joined Audacious Veg as a volunteer back in Winter 2017. Since then I've gotten more involved with the project and became a director back in August 2018, and am now involved with planning the project and am the one that thinks about everything in numbers!

NATALIE SZAREK founder
Founder of Audacious Veg, after coming up with the idea while spending time working on urban farms in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.

ā€œI came up with the idea for Audacious Veg from feeling that local food systems should be a tool for making our society more socially just and fair rather than replicating the power inequalities of the existing system. Iā€™d like to see the local food movement to grow beyond being geared towards people who can relate to it as (largely well-off) consumers, and to be actively creating possibilities for people to relate to it as producers being paid a fair wage.ā€

WE'RE SEEKING BOARD MEMBERS

Do you share our vision for a better food system? One that's environmentally, socially and economically constructive and creates opportunities? Great! Get in touch and we'll arrange a time to have a chat and we can let you know more about being on the Board of Directors with Audacious Veg.
