About Produce to the People Tasmania
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, recognised as a PBI and have DGR status which means your donations are tax deductible, and our ethos is “grow, gather, give”.
The work we do includes:
Provide a free, emergency food relief hub where the community can access fresh produce grown on The Farm, donated through backyard growers or rescued from food waste.
Experiment with and improve sustainable farming practices.
Helping children discover the sources of their food via tours and workshops.
Increasing public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food.
Educate the community on how to cook and preserve fresh seasonal food in nutritious ways.
Train and educate community members in innovative and entrepreneurial ways to create food products and micro businesses using fresh produce.
We encourage trust relationships with an emphasis on dignity for all.
