In the 2020 financial year, Green Connect:
- Employed 144 young people and former refugees (more jobs)
- Kept 102 tonnes of waste out of landfill (less waste)
- Grew and distributed 35,250kg of chemical-free food (fair food)
We also won a range of awards, secured grant funding to expand what we do, started work on a new farm hub, opened a new op shop, weathered the dual storms of bushfire season and the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak, and significantly increased our staffing solutions services. What a year!
As always, Green Connect is what it is because people believe in it and vote with their time, energy and money to keep it going. A huge thank you to all of our staff, volunteers, customers, funders and supporters. Together we are showing that job creation, waste reduction and a local fair food system are all possible.
