After over a decade of business experience which was gained through the startup and running of Console Care, a home-based nursing agency, Donna Barnard has found herself in an entirely different arena with a growing passion for organic food and farming.
In 2017, she embarked on an entrepreneurial journey and centred Greenheart Organics around the simple purpose of sourcing and supplying pesticide and chemical free food to family and friends. This demand has grown slowly and steadily over a four-year period and Donna has faced challenges which have impacted every facet of life as she once knew it. Her accomplishments include anything from packing orders until the early hours of the morning, to building an ecommerce website, to arriving home covered in black jacks, boots cacked in dirt and smelling of worm wee while she attempted her new role in farming an organic farmstead.
Donna has recently become a Greenpeace activist which aims to campaign against the growing food sovereignty crisis.
