A Londoner born and bred, Rachel started her sustainable food journey as an intern at Sustain in 2012. She was working as a vegan chef at the time and went on to set up and run a local veg scheme called Crop Drop. She also helped to establish a community food hub at Wolves Lane, set up a community kitchen and food growing operation there and worked on marketing at Growing Communities alongside. She grows food at home and with her local community garden in Woodford. Her current and enduring obsession is her small brood of hens.
