In this episode we speak with Sheia Kironn, who owns and operates Lifeforce Farm; a one-acre certified organic farm in Mullumbimby, a small town near Byron Bay, NSW.
Sheia grew up in the Midlands of England, where she spent hours gardening with her grandma in a small allotment garden in a council estate. The small patch of land provided a large amount of food to the family and left a lasting impression on Sheia.
After moving to Australia as a teenager, Sheia followed her passion for science to university, before switching to natural therapies. These days she blends the two worlds to grow vegetables that she sells and distributes locally. As a self-professed 'farm-her', Sheia is committed to creating a business that represents her and doesn't expand simply for expansions sake.
