My name is Simon Roberts.
I cultivate communities that live in harmony with nature.
Currently, my time and energy is focused on designing natural learning experiences for children by growing farms at schools. I’m also dedicated to forming strategic partnerships to grow the following communities: Common Kitchen, Harvest Club, Grateful Peoples, Farms Not Arms and Elizabeth Street Garden.
In recent years, I was the Director of New Business at HowGood, a food research company that has raised over $10M to analyse the growing, sourcing, and production methods of over 250,000 food products found in supermarkets. In addition, I had a hand in building several urban farms in New York City including: North Brooklyn Farms, Smallhold and SquareRoots. As well as serving on the board of ChangeFood.
Over the past decade, I co-founded Positive Posters, a global graphic design competition that inspired over 5,000 submissions from over 80 countries over 4 years. Worked with Master Builders Association to design an apprenticeship program which was rolled out nationally across Australia. Secured a partnership to launch Airbnb in Australia. Launched a Rooftop Cinema in Hong Kong. And somewhere I have an official looking degree of Entrepreneurship from RMIT.
If you’ve made it this far you may as well say “hi.”
