“This is the moment when what we need most is enough people with the skill, heart, and wisdom to help us pull ourselves back from the edge of breakdown and onto a different path. Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Otto Sharmer

Role: Coordinating Group member and ‘Farmers’ Connector

Priscilla is founder and farmer at Adelaide Urban Food Mosaic. Although AUFM is in its’ infancy, Priscilla’s grand vision is to see a mosaic of interconnected, supportive and productive growing spaces among our concrete jungle, providing sustainable, nutritious food to the local community.

She believes there is huge potential for creating and expanding a micro-farm network within metro Adelaide that complements our peri-urban growers. So drawing on her experiences as a winemaker and as a management accountant, she is quietly working away at nurturing soils and souls.

Her belief in the goals of the SA Urban Food Network is best summed up via that Otto Scharmer quote (above).

Priscilla holds a B.Com (Hons) from the University of Adelaide and a B. Applied Science (Wine Science) from Charles Sturt University.
