Action from the heart.

About the speaker

Julie spent her earlier years on a Biodynamic farm in a wheat belt area outside of Three Springs 300kms north of Perth. Here she learnt how to cook food for the community, including the annual shearing team. Sharing stories seemed to be part of everyone’s lives.

While raising three children on her own (at a time when most jobs didn’t allow for juggling), she started her first social enterprise, a home delivery service connecting farm produce to city homes.

More recently, Julie’s Deli Cafe “The food Store” had opposite neighbours. On one side a bustling business community and right next door some of the most disadvantaged (and isolated) people imaginable. This was the moment Julie jumped into helping others, particularly those marginalised from society. After managing Perth City Farm for 2 years, Julie joined Food Rescue where she is all action.
