With the community we have designed and developed a sustainable community food hub, which is working to improve the health and well being of local residents by increasing access to good quality, fair priced fresh produce.
Through the four arms of the project we offer multi faceted accredited skills training and pathways to employment. In partnership with TasTAFE we have developed a learning framework offering accredited training in Production Horticulture, Hospitality, Retail and Food Operations.
The project delivers a community food and training hub that creates a sustainable model improving the health and wellbeing of local residents and community by:
- increasing access to good quality affordable fresh produce at our café and store.
- providing opportunities and pathways to training and employment for volunteers and job seekers in the community through our four social enterprise arms.
- offering on the job work experiences and accredited training in retail, hospitality, kitchen operations, production horticulture, agri foods and business in partnership with TasTafe, Burnie.
- delivering opportunities that are designed to increase community participation, improve well being and self worth, and develop transferable work skills.
