Bernie Scotford's first contact with Food Connect was with Robert Pekin back when it was starting. His background is growing up on a coffee plantation in PNG at grass-roots local level, and he likes to see the same grass-roots level at Food Connect. He says "people at Food Connect are attuned to nature, and they see the earth is more important than anything else" and he's always happy to work with people like this.
