YOUR LOCAL FOOD CO-OP ON THE SURF COAST

Contact Us

We request that all those interested in applying to the co-op please ensure they are familiar with the project and have a level of commitment before coming on board. All the information on how the co-op works and what is involved in each of the roles is available on this website. In particular, it is important that you read the article “Why our box varies” which is posted in the news section. This explains that as a seasonal, organic/biodynamic box of fruit & veg dependent on weather extremes, and which is ordered remotely from the market poses challenges which means that our box varies in its make-up. The produce is always fresh and good quality, just sometimes we do not get enough of it. This article explains what we are trying to do about that and how the money matters are handled. So, beware!, our box does not always look like a box (or plastic bag) of fruit & veg you would walk out the door with from Safeway or Peaches.

While there is a lot of information on the website – even better – go down to packing day (Spring Creek Community House – Thursdays 8.30-9am) and talk to some of the other members and really get a feel for how it works.

Please also note that the administration of the co-op operates on a monthly basis, so your commitment when coming on board would need to be for at least one month.

 

Membership Form

To apply to join the co-op please complete the form below.

Please note:

  • Every member of the co-op must take on a role and when completing the form you will need to indicate your preferred role. Please download the Role descriptions – Admin and Role descriptions – Packers documents for details of each of the roles. It is important that if you accept a packing/delivering role you are available on Thursday mornings. This is usually only once per month and if you are not available for your shift you will need to organise a swap with another member. Occasionally you may be rostered a second Thursday to cover a gap.
  • In order for the co-op to work effectively members commit to receiving a weekly box. Unfortunately at this stage a fortnightly delivery is not possible.

After receipt of the completed membership form you will be contacted by email with wait list details and all relevant information.

For any further information specifically in relation to Memberships please email memberships@farmgatefoods.org.au.
