Jade Miles

National Program Manager

With the bush in her bones and business in her head, Jade Miles is a poly-jobist to the core. She’s a local food advocate and educator, business builder, food co-op founder, author, podcaster and regenerative heritage fruit farmer.

Together with her husband and three kids, Jade runs Black Barn Farm, a biodiverse orchard, nursery and workshop space in Northeast Victoria. She’s an active presence in the regenerative space, hosting school programs, permaculture and homesteading workshops while sitting on multiple boards – all in the name of reconnecting people to nature, food and a simpler existence.

Before landing at Sustainable Table as the National Program Director, Jade ran her own business start-up consultancy for over a decade, worked as Industry Development Manager for the Regional Tourism Board and established the Beechworth Food Co-op for good measure. She brings this breadth of skills and relentless enthusiasm to her role at ST, where she joins the dots between Our Fund and incredible regenerative projects around the country to build capacity and expedite change.
