Lovely backyard grown lemons gathered and given | a new Work for the Dole project begun | LOTS of hothouse action | farm tours with kinder kiddies | another super busy few weeks in the emergency food relief hub – we are assisting an average of 200 people each day we open  | can you help us fill our pantry by making a monthly donation of $25?  We only need 16 people/month to do this to be able to fully stock with pasta, cereal, eggs – the staples we can’t grow ourselves | BIG HUGS to our community – we love being a part of a place that knows kindness.

A week in August

A week in August 2016

There’s a lot that goes into making Produce to the People tick on a weekly basis.  This week though special LOVE goes out to the gorgeous people that donated to make what we do such a joy:

We had pumpkins, lemons and parsley from backyards.

Coffee grinds and chaff from Infuse Coffee Burnie for our compost.

Bread from Golden Grain Bakery and Woolworths.

Trout and king fish from a fishmonger in Wynyard.

Boxes of goodies from the staff at Caterpillar Burnie

All sorts of produce from Second Bite.

And of course we have been enjoying LOTS OF CHEESE from Lion Co.

Plus produce grown and gathered from our own farm and tended by the wonderful Kim, Kinglsey and the WFD crew.

All this food was shared via 28 home deliveries and ten Primary School produce boxes, and another 120 homes via people visiting us in our food hub.

All in a weeks work.

PS: And a special shout out must go to our awesome vols Michelle, Caitlin and Margaret who gather and give!

Produce to the People…

PttP the week that was November week 3 2015.jpg

Another awesome week on The Farm with much growing, gathering and giving.  We broke our last week’s Tuesday record of Emergency Food Relief visitors with 73 through the door on Tuesday!  Lots of new faces including many young men currently couch surfing or living in cars.  We are very pleased that we have been able to create a space that welcomes all.

Work began on the prototype for our new chook house. Give a man with imagination a pile of old tyres  and be amazed.  We can’t wait to see the end result.

We are also seeing the first berries and strawberries in the garden…..the birds and one particular team member have been enjoying the first spoils. Snooze you loose!

We had Farm visits from the folks at the Wynyard Adult Day Centre and Waterbridge Food Co-Op who came for very different reasons and left with  much to think about.  We LOVE showing people around our space. If your organisation would like to visit, please do get in touch.

Grow, gather, give and love the one you’re with x
