We are still seeking a qualified gardener to bolster our knowledge and experience base on our crews. If you know of someone with extensive gardening experience that you think can, and wants to, work with an All Abilities crew, please send them our way.
Office support / Assistant to Warren
We have made progress in finding someone who is considering a offer for this position. Hopefully, we will be successful and Warren can get the assistance he surely needs.
A Home Base – Still Looking
Progress in finding a space, say 1 Ha, plus buildings to store machinery, product and an office away from Warren’s home, has been slow.
This space could be a hub for training, market gardening, composting, nursery, shop, café etc. Any ideas for finding a space and funding from our support network would be greatly appreciated.
You may have noticed the new van that has new signwriting with the new slogan ‘A Social Enterprise and All Abilities Employer’. (See Picture) We will progressively change the signwriting on all the vans to present the same message. We believe the new slogan more accurately reflects our purpose as a social enterprise.
