Green Connect works with and within our community. We connect with others to create and grow our work.

Paid work with Green Connect

We’re hiring

We are hiring two casual Zero Waste Supervisors for the busy event season ahead. Read more and apply here.

We’ll advertise new roles here, on our Facebook page and through our newsletter as they become available.

General team

Are you interested in coming to work for Green Connect? If you are a former refugee or under 25 (or both), and interested in working in fair food or waste recovery, we’d love to hear from you. If you’re interested in working for us, but don’t fit this criteria, we’re keen to hear why our supported program is a good fit for you, or how your skills are good fit for Green Connect. To tell us you’re interested, please fill in our short expression of interest form.

Youth employment

We have a program designed for under 25 year olds who are not currently employed or in education and who want to do work that matters, within a team that genuinely supports each other and gives everyone a chance. We offer training, work experience on the Green Connect farm, support and paid work when you’re ready. Let us know you’re interested and sign up for an information session here.

Volunteer with Green Connect

Green Connect draws on the skills, commitment and generosity of volunteers to:

  • Interview, support, and connect with our staff to help them meet their employment goals
  • Help out at our farm
  • Translate, particularly Farsi, French, Burmese, Karen, Dari, Tamil, Amharic, Arabic and Somali
  • Provide specialist skills that help us develop our business

We welcome new farm volunteers weekly and other volunteers on a regular basis to provide a briefing, screening and induction. If you would like to be involved, please fill in our short expression of interest form. We also run the occasional Farm Blitz and Community Day. Join the rest of the community on our farm to see what we do, work the land and share a meal. See our Facebook page for upcoming events.

Buy from Green Connect

Buying from us is the best way to get involved and support our work. We grow and sell fruit, vegetables, herbs and free range meat from our Fair Food farm, through weekly fruit and vegetable boxes, one-off meat orders and commercial arrangements with cafes, restaurants, hotels and caterers. We consult to businesses, councils and event organisers, helping to minimise the amount of waste going to landfill, through our Zero Waste services. We also manage waste at events to ensure as much as possible is composted and recycled.
We have reliable, hard-working staff available via labour hire for jobs in horticulture, agriculture, cleaning, waste management, construction, event assistance and general labour. And we’re expanding our services
all the time, so if you can help us to employ more former refugees and young people, and care for people and planet in doing so, we’d love to hear from you!

Donate to Green Connect

To grow our outcomes, create more jobs in a region with too few, and become fully financially sustainable through trade, we plan to scale two of our products: composting food and garden organics and fair food.
Right now, we need donations – large and small – to work with to achieve this. Donations are tax deductible.

Can you help us scale up and make a difference?
