AMY WARNE - FARMER
We’re stoked to introduce you to Amy. She’s a Freo local and has a tonne of experience working with community, in sustainability and gardening. Many of you may know her from her work with Hilton Harvest.
DYLAN SMITH - CHAIR
When they met, Dylan’s wife Julia kindly said “we can live anywhere you want…in North Fremantle”. Dylan’s day job WA State Manager at Philanthropy Australia.
TOM CUNNINGHAM - CHAIR
Tom lives across the road from the farm and likes having a beer of an evening while keeping an eye on the crops…his engineering and business skills may also come in handy.
JOCE LÉ - BOARD MEMBER
Joce likes to bring cake to board meetings, making her the favourite. She is also our gun numbers and compliance person (her day job is an accountant). This double whammy make her the first, second and third favourite board member. Easily.
HUGH CHERVIS - BOARD MEMBER
Having spend his childhood on a farm and his career in forests and conservation, growing is in Hugh's bones. His feel for the technical side of the Farm is priceless.
KYLIE KNIEPF - BOARD MEMBER
Local mum and all round techy legend, Kylie takes on mountains of unsexy admin work. She is the unsung powerhouse behind the scenes!
RENÉE GARDINER - FOUNDER
Renée has held an inspired vision for the North Freo Social Farm since the very beginning. Renée has incredible knowledge of the site, obsession with market gardens, passion for social impact and wellbeing, plus a killer relationship skills. She is, a star!
Renee graciously, generously and unassumingly lead the transition from phase one, Growing Change to phase two North Freo Social Farm. The Farm as we know it would not exist with out Renee. Now no longer a formal Board member, she is our strong supporter and will always be our Founder.
