Sally Packer


I've been a lifelong organic gardener, keen foodie and also have over 30 years experience of creating and organising community festivals around the UK - 17 years specialising in food festivals.. I founded the Organic Food Festival in Bristol which was later adopted by the Soil Assoc. as their flagship event and became the largest consumer festival if it's kind in Europe. I brought a smaller version of the festival to The Old Fruit Market in Glasgow and have also created festivals for Garden Organic, RHS and N.T. I am now retired and have only recently moved to Scotland but would love to get involved in community food/growing activities where my skills and experience found be out to good use. Prior to moving I was CEO of a social enterprise organising a large annual community food festival on the West Country.
