Hi, I'm Krystal taking over from where James left off. I am an Environmental Planner and trade-qualified chef and hail from Australia. I am the startup founder of Insurgent Foods, which is a plant-based company right here in Canterbury. I hope to deliver a broad range of content tapping into a more comprehensive look at our environment—the interconnectedness of the natural world means sustainability, land use, farming, business, literature, research, animal welfare, and rights are all part of the conversation. Join me every fortnight at 1 pm for A Vegan Lounge. You never know where the conversation might lead.
