Rose Lewis


Rose works for the Soil Association, helping to create new models for sustainable and local food systems. She leads the work at Woodoaks Farm in the urban fringe, where local communities are invited to be part of the transition from conventional to organic farming, putting community and wildlife front and centre.

Rose’s journey here was defined by her Masters in Environmental Technology where she discovered the role agriculture has played in contributing to the climate crisis and how it can also contribute to help to solve the twin crisis of climate and biodiversity loss caused by industrial-scale food systems. Her entrepreneurial mindset comes from experience starting a business accelerator, investing and supporting over 50 digital tech startups. She enjoys working with awesome people and is renowned for introducing disruptive ideas to organisations for positive transformation.
