The Producers

Green thumbs up!

The Producers produce produce… ugh.. sorry that might have been confusing.

The Producers produce produce (if it still doesn't make sense, come and see us).

ANYWAYS... The Producers plant, maintain and harvest veggies (or "produce" ...get it, now?) around campus.

The Producers also run workshops teaching others how to make:

  • pesto (with fresh garden ingredients);
  • chutney (with fresh garden ingredients);
  • terrariums;
  • a worm farm to compost food scraps; and 
  • so much more!

Meet Jono - your 2018 Producers Coordinator

Hi there! I’m Jonathan – 3rd year civil and environmental engineering student. I joined the Producers in my first year because I was interested in self-sufficiency but stayed for everything that goes into living and growing food sustainably.

Having misidentified roughly half the plants I’ve ever seen, and killed a little more than my fair share, I think it’s safe to say I’ve learnt a few lessons along the way – about what not to do. But I’m a reformed man now - trust me.

But in all seriousness, if you’re interested in learning to grow some of your own food, how to keep a worm farm alive, are just interested in making things a little more “sustainable” and getting your hands dirty (or not) we’re always open to new volunteers - no matter your background or experience.  

Volunteer!

If sustainability is your specialty and you have a green thumb, The Producers is the place for your passion to grow. 

Volunteer to nurture your own produce, build planter boxes and care for on-campus gardens. 

Volunteers also run regular workshops, host pop-ups on campus and cook up a storm using the fresh produce.

Volunteering with The Producers is also recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
