The PttP Inc Board

PttP Board 2017

The PttP Inc Board work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure we continue our good works in the Tasmanian community. Their latest achievement is to gain PBI status for PttP.  This is no mean feat!  It also means we now have DGR status that means all your lovely donations are tax deductible.

Seeds to the People

seed bank header

We are very excited to launch our latest project – a NW Tassie SEED BANK – in collaboration with Multicap, with funding from the Mercy Foundation.

Every Thursday The Farm is becoming a hive of activity with our team cutting seed packets from recycled papers, sorting seeds already donated by locals and the wonderful folk at Urban Farming Tasmania then packaging them up ready to be given away.

How can you be a part of it?

Send us your seeds!  Preferably your home grown best so we keep things local and also know we are sharing the best of the best. Our address is PO Box 3097, Burnie 7320 or you can drop in and see us between 9-2 every Tuesday & Thursday.

Ask for seeds! If you are starting a garden or would like to add some local goodness get in contact and hopefully within a few weeks we will have enough in store to send out.

Learn how to save seeds!  We will be sharing seed saving starter tips right here over the coming months.  Sign up to the blog so you don’t miss out.

Volunteering – so good for the soul

volunteer call out August 2017

No one likes to admit it, but we are getting a little desperate.

Desperate for volunteers to work in our gardens.

This Tuesday we are holding our monthly volunteer orientation hour at 11 am and invite individuals, service organisations, schools and businesses to come along to see how you might be able to help us feed your community.

Join Burnie High School students, Caterpillar, Multicap and a host of individuals who already help out at various times.  You might be able to assist once or twice a week, maybe once a month??

Whilst you are here, we have been throwing around some other ideas….Can you let us know if any of these options interest you?
