Seasons come and seasons go – so do volunteers! We are on a mission to find more people to join Tasmania’s Community Group of the Year on The Farm @ Produce to the People, growing, gathering and giving.
We are not for just anyone though. You will have to have a valid Working with Vulnerable People Card . You will have to have a kind disposition with a smile as default and be someone who, whilst your experience and opinion will be heard, must be able to follow directions. We are a centrelink approved organisation so if you have to do a certain number of hours we can sign your paperwork!
We have opportunities for people available to do the afternoon shift in the food hub (12-3pm), delivery drivers – dropping off produce boxes to elders in our community, produce gatherers – bread and other assorted goodies and gardeners – for our new edible flower garden, micro greens and veggie patches.
Our next volunteer orientation hour is on Tuesday 14th August at 11:30am but if you can’t wait until then pop into The Farm on any Tuesday or Thursday between midday and 2pm and ask for Michelle.
Hot on the heels of becoming Tasmania’s Community Group of the Year, Produce to the People is looking for some new faces on our Board.
We have vacancies for a volunteer board member in the role of Treasurer plus two general board positions. The role of the PttP Board is to manage and govern the organisation in accordance with our constitution and strategic plan as well as to comply with its legal and financial responsibilities. The board meets monthly in person &/or via Skype which means the applicants can be based anywhere in Tasmania or Australia for that matter.

Finances. Previous Treasurer experience for the win. We use Xero and and have a bookkeeper in place.
Strong interest in community development, with particular focus on food, education, permaculture
Strategic planning experience
