Georgia is a public health professional who has worked across the international development and community health sector for over 10 years. Starting with global not-for-profits including WaterAid and the Fred Hollows Foundation, Georgia developed her community engagement and project management skills whilst fitting in a lot of travel! Wanting to turn her attention to local projects based in Australia, she discovered The Community Grocer and her passion for food quickly developed.
Georgia helped to build The Community Grocer from a small but strong beginning into a thriving social enterprise with a larger footprint and a greater impact. Her role as General Manager saw her strengthen every part of the organisation from supply chains to marketing to customer engagement. Georgia now sits on the Board of The Community Grocer, continuing to provide support and advice so that local communities in Victoria can access affordable and culturally appropriate fruit and vegetables.
Georgia is also a keen grower of food. She participated in the first Farmer Incubator Pop Up Garlic Farmers program and went on to volunteer and implement the program the following year. Still growing garlic, Georgia has recently moved to the Western region of Victoria to a strawbale house. She is excited to work with growers, producers and consumers to strengthen the wonderful local food system in Victoria.
