Corangamite - Professional Landcarer
Kristy grew up on her family sheep and agroforestry farm by the Otway Ranges Victoria. This cultivated a passion for environmental stewardship, regenerative farming and local food systems. Kristy went on to study a Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences where she was the recipient of the rural finance scholarship award, later completing further courses on regenerative farming principles and business management, low stress stock handling, food nutrition and hospitality. Currently, Kristy co-manages her family farm, developing and running educational tours on the property along with her small side business selling ‘paddock to plate’ lamb boxes and catering for local events using local, sustainably farmed produce.
Kristy also holds a part-time role with the Upper Barwon Landcare Network as a project manager.
