Graham Cullen

Castlemaine, Victoria

Organic food champion

For the past decade, Graham has been running The Food Garden – an award-winning business that
delivers organic food boxes throughout central Victoria. Based on the community supported agriculture (CSA) model, but with added flexibility, it offers access to seasonal organic produce from local growers through a weekly commitment. However, managing the operations requires time-consuming and costly administrative practices, and a steep learning curve. To solve this problem, Graham has created a software application that enables growers to directly manage their orders, box packing, customer preferences and deliveries. “My vision is for Australians to have access to direct relationships with the folk who grow our food, and give growers the tools to access markets that currently seem difficult to attain.”
