Lentil Purbrick

Lentil and Matt Purbrick began selling produce from their Central Victorian farm to some of Melbourne’s top restaurants and cafes in 2013, encouraging chefs to adopt principles of local, real produce and sustainable farming and packaging. But they craved more. They wanted to extend the conversation. So, they decided to open their van doors to the people of Melbourne, pulling up in forgotten side lanes to sell and trade their home-grown vegetables, flowers, and produce "like drug dealers for vegetarian hipsters." They soon sold out week after week, and their education became something sought after. They are now authors—their first book, Grown & Gathered, was released in 2016—educators, bloggers, and advocates for sustainability and a bright future.
