Tim Kershaw – Chef Presenter

Tim has worked as a high level chef since 2004, including at Neil Perry’s Rosetta, George Colombaris’ famous Press Club in Melbourne, and at The Potting Shed in Wiltshire, England.

Two and a half years ago, while working in a fine dining restaurant, Tim truly realised the huge amounts of waste generated by the hospitality industry.

He then decided to focus on making a real difference with food and moved from Melbourne to Fremantle, continuing to work in kitchens and learning more about growing and producing his own food.

Tim realised the importance of soil fertility and turning kitchen waste for compost – the key to creating sustainable cycles for the industry.
