You know you are here to make a difference. You know you are ready to bring something exciting to life.
Yet you have so many unanswered questions, and you’re not sure where to go for the answers.
What you’re looking for is some extra support from someone who has lived and breathed food systems change for the past ten years.
You’re looking for some guidance on which steps to take next, or who to contact, or where to go for all the information you need to bring your vision to life.
When you work with me, you’ll turn that deep desire for change into a clear pathway to action.
You’ll feel so energised about the difference you can make to the food system – whether it’s in your own home, community or through advocacy.
Let’s work together.
With the combined effort of your passion and vision, with my knowledge, contacts and experience, we can transform the food system from the ground up.
I was looking for guidance on building a community compost hub and shared street garden. Kylie provided a thorough assessment of the physical space we had available and gave advice on how we could best make the operation work, both from a processing and logistics perspective and from a user experience perspective. Most importantly Kylie gave me the reassurance and confidence to launch in! I now manage a thriving community hub that processed over a tonne of waste in the first few months of operation and provides an abundance of herbs to the community it serves. It’s a beautiful example of how we can build circular economy in our own backyards. I wholeheartedly recommend Kylie for any advice you are looking for on how to build sustainable food communities, whether it’s on a micro scale in your own home or on a scale that will build and serve whole communities.

Here’s some answers
Q. You’re more expensive than other coaches I’ve looked into. Why should I choose to work with you?
If you’re here, you probably know the answer to that question in your gut. But in a nutshell: I’m expensive because I’m worth it.
The knowledge I have stored in my head comes from years of studying, working in the field, reading, researching, lecturing and connecting with others in this space, as well as my own experience.
You know that old saying, you don’t know what you don’t know. Well, when it comes to the food system, there is a lot to know, and I’ve spent years getting my head around both the challenges and the solutions.
Which is why my packages are priced as they are. All of the information stored in my head, makes your life a lot easier. I either know the answers to your questions, or know where to find them, so all you have to do is take action after our session.
So if you’re ready to have access to everything that is stored in my brain, then I look forward to working with you. If you’re not feeling it, I’m probably not the right fit for you.
Q. What’s the difference between your coaching packages and consulting rates?
The three coaching packages I offer are clearly outlined, and can be booked through Book Like a Boss from my website. My consulting rates are based on a day rate and are quoted specifically to each individual client.
Q. Do you work with people outside of Australia?
I might charge in Australian Dollars (you can thank me later!) but I work and collaborate with people from all around the world. This means I’m happy to troubleshoot tricky time zones when you’re booking a time to work with me.
If you have any difficulties booking in a time to chat, please get in touch with my team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort something out.
Q. How do I know you can really help me? It’s a really big investment for me to outlay when I’m just starting out with my project. How do I know it will be worth it?
If your project is specifically focused on creating a better food system than it’s highly likely, I can help you. Many of the people I’ve worked with have had huge breakthroughs after working with me, as you’ll see from their testimonials.
I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, then you’re after some sort of help with getting an idea off the ground. The guidance and support that I offer comes from years of experience working on a range of different projects myself, as well as seeing first hand, people just like you, set up their own exciting projects in their communities.
I know first hand what it’s like to want to do something exciting, and have limited funds to do so. I also know how fulfilling it can be, when you do decide to invest a little money in things that catapult you forward.
When you work with me, I can supercharge your vision from an idea, into actionable steps. I’ll likely connect you with people you never knew existed. I’ll ask questions that you would never have thought to ask yourself. So the question to ask yourself is, is your idea worth it? If you’re still undecided, then book a free discovery call here and we can discuss things further.
I met Kylie in 2018, our paths crossing over our mutual interest in sustainable food. Kylie’s advocacy has had a direct impact for me, both as a food producer and as a food citizen. Her leadership in the submissions for an urban farm to be included in the Victoria Park redevelopment in 2019 and the global Food Systems Vision Prize in 2020, was visionary and collaborative. As a result of her tireless support of small scale farms, farmers, makers and markets in the region, the Brisbane local food scene is abuzz with choices, quality ethically produced options and a thriving consumer conversation! Kylie has a real ability to identify opportunities for change and then bring them to life through her passion in creating a food system that serves the people, and not corporate interests.
