WANTED: Part-time manager/entrepreneur - Urban Food Garden Demo Site

Source Community Wholefoods Coop is inviting expressions of interest

"from persons interested in developing and managing the sustainable food production display garden adjacent to our food retail premises in Sandy Bay, Hobart.

If you have horticultural experience at a managerial level, as well as experience working with volunteers, we would like to hear from you. We particularly invite inquiries from persons with an entrepreneurial nature who would be comfortable with sharing risks and rewards. The size of the opportunity is largely up to you, but we would expect a minimum commitment of around 6hrs per week. The Source Board has identified four potential models for the management role".

Support a community garden in Lindisfarne

We have been asked to help support a group in Lindisfarne to persuade Aldermen on Clarence Council that a community garden at Beltana Park, Lindisfarne, is a great way to revitalise the Lindisfarne community. The group's long-term aim is to become a permanent group that focuses on sustainable living and building the Lindisfarne community. They say:

A community garden, centrally located at Beltana Park, Lindisfarne, would enable both local residents without a garden to grow their own vegies and local Lindisfarne schools to teach students how to grow fresh produce. A Beltana Community Garden would revitalise the village and reconnect young and old with others in the area. Please visit the Lindisfarne Community Garden Group web site at www.lindisfarnecommunitygarden.info and sign our electronic petition. Signatures from people outside Clarence are very welcome. For more information call Max Bahrfeldt on 0407 335843.
