Our mission is to create delicious food for our community with the beautiful, diverse abundance blossoming around us at Wakelyns organic agroforestry, the home of our bakery and kitchen, and from other agroecological farms and producers.
Our vision is for our bakery to become a model of an agroecological bakery and food business, which demonstrates resilience, holistic productivity and longevity for all Beings – from the living soil, to our bakers and cooks, to all of our customers, eaters, food citizens, our whole Earth. We would like to share our learning so that others can build bakeries and agroecological food businesses in their communities. This will enable greater accessibility to healthful, delicious, alive and localised food, whilst simultaneously helping to heal our Earth.
Our longer term vision is to live in a world where every human has access to just, kind and nourishing food; and where agroecological farming, forestry work, baking, cooking and all land-based work is recognised as a dignified livelihood.
Imagine a world where every home, bakery, food shop, cafe, restaurant and hotel is connected directly to their local farms. Imagine our inner human-world landscapes thriving with our outer-world landscapes – we cannot disconnect the two as they are so intrinsically linked – we are Nature.
Imagine how connected, happy, healthy, flourishing, diverse, beautiful, kind and loving that world could be.
