I am thrilled to let you know that the Australian Government is supporting Produce to the People Tasmania by funding us for one more year!
We’ve learnt a lot over the past four years and based on those learnings we are going to change things up a little. From now on we are going to build on our relationships with local Schools and deliver fresh, locally grown produce to most of the Primary Schools between Forth and Cooee on a weekly basis. We will also be able to continue our Snack Garden program in participating Burnie Primary Schools adding another to the mix as well.
A BIG thanks to Sid Sidebottom, Julie Collins, Senator Anne Urquhart and the team at FaHCSIA who all played a part in making the funding happen.
This means we will be collecting backyard & farm grown veggies again. I’ll list new drop off spots very soon, and if you have LARGE amounts of FRUIT or VEG, let me know and we can organise a pick up.
We will also be looking at ways to become a self sustaining operation. We are currently looking at a few different ways we might be able to do this.
What a relief! We are so happy!! Watch this space, and please come along for the ride.
And for now…
Grow, gather, give & love the one you’re with xxx
