WE EXIST TO ELIMINATE SOCIAL ISOLATION

W e have a VISION to cultivate a socially vibrant and inclusive Australia. An Australia where all people, no matter their background, feel connected and dignified. Where mental illness or being over the age of 50 are not barriers to employment. Where people are free from poverty and homelessness. Our vision is for a joined-

up, empathetic and social economy where people’s needs are met and where all people are thriving.

And, we are on a MISSION to empower people, build social inclusion and provide pathways to sustainable livelihoods through providing engagement, training and transitional employment programs for people vulnerable to or experiencing mental illness,

homelessness, long-term unemployment and older age. Our mission is to change the face of social isolation in Australia. We also happen to be farmers, food producers and merchants of deliciously and nutritiously awesome premium, gourmet and organic produce. We’re gearing up, and we’re excited…really excited.
