Produce to the People Inc. is on a mission to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all. Set on 2 acres within the grounds of Burnie High School in Cooee, North West Tasmania, we operate a diversified, four-season farm and an education centre that will host thousands of visitors each year. We are a social profit organisation and our ethos is grow, gather, give.
The work we do includes:
Providing a free food hub where the community can access locally grown produce that we grow on site or is donated and might otherwise have gone to waste
Deliver for free boxes of produce to elders in our community
Hosting Work for the Dole Projects offering work experience to unemployed in the region
Experiment with and improve sustainable farming practices.
Training beginning farmers in resilient, regenerative farming techniques.
Helping children discover the sources of their food while preparing them to steward the land that provides it.
Increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food.
