Warndu is an Indigenous owned company, founded by Damien Coulthard and Rebecca Sullivan.
Damien is a proud Indigenous man from Adnyamathanha Country, from the Northern Flinders and Gammon Ranges in South Australia; a sacred place of immense social and environmental significance to the Adnyamathanha people. Damien is passionate about helping Indigenous People achieve their cultural and economic aspirations and firmly establish their community goals of self -determination and celebrate their cultural identity through Warndu, education and other work related to Native Titles.
Rebecca Sullivan a self-taught cook who has worked with coffee farmers in Uganda and with the United Nations in the Maldives. She studied Rural Development and Sustainable Agriculture in the UK and so follows her passions of food security, tradition, sustainability and good, clean and fair produce by working at Warndu.
Warndu ‘looks to the past to protect the future’ by working with Aboriginal communities, harvesters and growers across Australia, to source First Nations foods and encourage Australians to use them in their daily lives. Warndu draws upon the dynamic harvesting and healing practices of the past to encourage an interconnection with all people, plants, and the earth.
