About Kevin Redd



Dr Kevin Redd brings a wealth of enthusiasm and penchant for edible plants to Plant Empire. He is an entertaining speaker and a self-confessed plant nerd who absolutely thrives on learning about and sharing the origins, history, cultivation and diverse uses for plants.

Kevin has a PhD in molecular ecology and a research background plant biochemistry. He owns the boutique nursery Sustainable Cuisine, operates a training organisation on the Sunshine Coast, and runs a productive self-sufficient food garden from which he is able to grow all of his own produce as well as cater for a wide range of events and expos around the region.

Expect opportunities to experience and taste real plants when you come to one of his talks. An active member of the Nursery and Garden Industry of Queensland, Kevin loves not only growing plants but also sharing his passion for edible plants and culinary applications and giving daily inspiration on what to do with the wonderful produce from our subtropical gardens.
