Christy Spier

“I love discovering all the people who are already growing local, urban food systems. I am privileged to work towards systems that regenerate and to keep learning from the natural world.”

Role: Network facilitator and ‘Community Groups’ Connector

Christy is an Urban Sustainability Coordinator with Natural Resourses Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges and facilitator here at SA Urban Food Network. She is currently the SA representative for Community Gardens Australia and supports her local community garden when she can.

Christy grew up in the creek beds of Ernabella, an Aboriginal community in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in South Australia. She moved to Adelaide to study communications, becoming the first CEO of Encounter Youth Inc. Having three children sparked her interest in ecological neighbourhoods. She loves conversations and action that come out of creek beds, parties and homes.
