There are going to be some changes here at Produce to the People HQ – our core funding ends soon. (Insert sad face). I am having one last ditch attempt over the next couple of weeks but to date, as much as I’ve tried to secure more funds I have come up empty (mutters under her breath).
We are currently consolidating how much and where we deliver bulk veggies, BUT we still want produce to be shared – so we are asking that you now give your backyard grown veggies to your neighbors & work mates, or maybe someone you don’t know……random veggie bombing anyone??
We’ll be around for a little while yet (a few months) and the awesome Snack Garden Primary School program in Burnie will continue until the end of the school year (2013).
PS: We gathered around 2300 kilos of produce in February. Backyard gardeners gave us tomatoes, apples, lettuce, eggs, cucumber, zucchinis, beans, parsnips, carrots, pumpkins, squash, spuds and silverbeet. Some produce came from local Woolworths stores and, of course our fabulous broccoli benefactors grew it for us big time! Ball park market cost of this grown, gathered, and given produce $11,000.
Thanks for your support over the last few years.
You’ve been awesome!
PPS: So there is one awesome founder, all rounder exploring future work options. If you have something exciting to offer head over to my LinkedIn profile to see if we might be a good fit? I’m open to offers and willing to relocate for the right position or project!
