What We Do


Our team is passionate about rural and regional communities in Australia. We want to see these communities thriving and working together to discover their unique potential. We take a holistic, systems view approach to fostering collective wellbeing that in turn helps to build strong local economies.

We are interested in working with community organisations, local government, not for profits, clubs and co-operatives to help you with community plans, strategic plans, project management and community development.

Contact us today to find out how we can work together to develop your communities’ capacity to be a regenerative community!

About Us

Our Team


Rachel Kendrigan

Regenerative Practitioner

A Mallee kid through and through, Rach is passionate about building strong rural and regional communities through embracing diversity, developing kinship with our natural resources and creating localized economies. Rach has worked for grassroots community activists, not for profit organisations and local government on a wide variety of projects including community development, event management, creative production, marketing, project management and strategic planning. With 15 years experience in the community sector spanning the arts, local food systems and community planning, they bring systems thinking, creativity and collaborative networking to everything they do. Rach has completed a Regenerative Practitioner course through the Regenisis Institute enabling them to further deepen their systems thinking and ability to manifest regenerative potential in projects and communities.

Tess Spaven

Social Researcher

Tess grew up on New South Wales coast but has found her home in the Mallee. Her academic background lies in Human Geography, Indigenous Trauma & Recovery Practice as well as child youth and family intervention. She has worked in social research, community development, youth capacity building, community arts and local food system activation. During her Honours year Tess conducted research on the topic of ethnically diverse communities, their roles within agriculture and how they have come to shape rural farming areas. Both her studies and experience working in community have given her a broad understanding of issues such as intercultural diversity, Indigenous perspective, challenges within our food systems, rural youth, immigration and population debates in Australia. Tess brings a unique capability to listen deeply and understand the core patterns and challenges in communities.

We live, play and work on the lands of the Latji Latji, Barkindji, Werigia, Nyeri Nyeri and Ngintait. We acknowledge the First Peoples of the Millewa Mallee as the traditional custodians of the water, land, animals and spirit of this Country.
