Alex Hamilton-Jones

Operations Manager

Ops Manager Alex first heard about ZCF when his partner sent him Richard’s TEDx talk:

“I was sent Richards TEDxClapham talk by my partner (who’s mum also talked at the event) and was fascinated with the vision of sustainably feeding cities from within. I’ve always had an interest in sustainability as the other option isn’t an option – we’ve only got one planet (so far) and exploiting finite natural resources is simply a dumb idea because eventually they’ll run out! I believe we can all live in abundance with good design, thoughtful engineering and being mindful of our expectations.”

A typical day at ZCF sees Alex planning future farm expansion and supporting long-term strategy discussions. However, it’s not uncommon to see him downstairs, chipping in on the farm with packing or scrubbing the floors.
