My role has been actually growing the plants. Community engagement. I also support NDIS clients to be involved. We have gathered produce for our weekly cooking classes. With one project done, where we built a compost stations. And are now a part of the Share Waste movement. We are register compost receivers. We collect from the local cafe The Coffee Nest.
