Sam resigned from his stable, 12-year long Victorian government job in environmental policy in 2015 to start two environment-focused social enterprises. Cultivate Farms and Edge Pledge, are now building momentum to make significant change for agriculture in regional Australia, and for wildlife on the brink of extinction respectively. The drive behind both of these businesses is his desire to connect people back to the land. Edge Pledge raises money to help get wildlife off the brink of extinction. It is a fun and interactive web app that helps you pick challenges for yourself and your friends using their world first challenge generator and voting process. Cultivate Farms matches young farming families with investors to own and operate a farm together. Sam grew up on a dairy farm, and understands the frustration of so many young people who want to farm, but can’t afford to own a multi-million-dollar farm.
