What made you decide to start The Harvest Table?
When I was 20 years old, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymph. I underwent traditional treatment including radiation etc, but it really made me re-look at how I live my life and what it means to be whole and healthy. I realised that diet was an important part of that, as well as looking after my mind, my soul, and my body. And so, it started… that was 20 years ago when I started this journey of investigating the power of good nutrition and what those essential building blocks were that I needed to nourish my body with to achieve health and wellness.
The more I delved into it, the more I realized the products I wanted to include in my own diet weren’t available locally. I started looking overseas to source products that were additive, flavourant and preservative free. I am passionate about empowering others to lead healthy full lives as well and thus The Harvest Table was born. So really, it came about from a personal passion and a desire to improve my own health and that of my family, but also very much driven by wanting to see other people empowered to live healthy, full lives.
