Coming from a previous life working in broad acre agriculture industry and high density urbanised areas, Ben was witness to the destruction of our rural lands and rise of urban environments. Through the Backyard Farms Project, he and Renae encourage urban agriculture through inviting customers to bring in high quality excess produce in exchange for other grocery items. Ben feels a sense of urgency and responsibility to share their experiences in the hope it may seed change for other communities as well.
