The two souls that make up Seed 2 Soul workshops are Evan and Nicole Pemberton. They came together with the common goal of sharing their love of wholefoods, sustainable living and community education to launch Seed 2 Soul in 2014. Since then they have run workshops throughout Sydney and regional NSW.
“Our goal is to empower and inspire others by teaching the value of seasonality, sustainability and the benefits of traditional wholefood cookery. We bring years of practical experience in the kitchen integrated with nutritional knowledge. Our workshops are hands-on, fun and focused on sharing skills and building confidence.”
Evan Pemberton has been working as a qualified Chef for the past 25 years and has a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine and Naturopathy). He currently works as a Commercial Cookery teacher at Le Cordon Bleu College and TAFE. Previously he represented Seed to Soul working with not-for-profit organisations such as The Bread & Butter project, Nourish Talks, Two Good soups and pilot cooking programs with Leichhardt council for ‘Youth in Crisis’.
