Renata Cumming

Renata grew up in Melbourne and spent weekends and holidays on her uncle and aunt’s farm in North East Victoria which led to her love of farming and influenced her decision to study Agriculture at the University of Melbourne, Dookie Campus, and a diverse career in Agriculture. 
She has always had a strong desire to help people understand how food is produced and encourage them to make better informed decisions that support Australian Agriculture, reduce food miles and make the most of regional and seasonal produce. 
Along with Shirley Saywell, she is a co-founder of Strathbogie Local; a volunteer run ‘click and collect’ online farmers market that was set up at the start of the COVID-19 restrictions to support farmers who had lost their primary source of revenue with the closure of restaurants and farmers markets and link them to customers who wanted access to high quality local produce.
