What do a former childcare worker and social psychologist have in common? A desire to nourish individuals, communities, small businesses and farmers.
Shann Akkersdyk, 41, and Bridgette Di Fernando, 37, do this through their not-for-profit organisation Bondi Food Collective, created in June 2013, which gives members easy access to real, chemical-free food.
The foodie duo met through Transition Bondi, part of the worldwide Transition Towns movement that originated in the UK to build resilient communities and which is heavily
influenced by permaculture principles. They also worked together in the Truck Off campaign, trying to stop the big supermarket chains setting up in Bondi, the famous
Sydney beachside suburb.
