Green Connect

Social enterprise and not-for-profit organisation focused on creating more jobs for former refugees and young people that help people and the planet

Green Connect does five things:

We employ young people and former refugees, who are disproportionately affected by high unemployment and who thrive in safe, welcoming, supportive workplaces.

We grow fair food, that’s good for the people who eat it, the people who grow it and the planet.

We reduce waste through our Zero Waste services for businesses and events and our innovative Op Shop.

We connect the community, knowing that social isolation is one of the biggest drivers of mental ill-health, and that when people come together, we can solve anything.

We run a sustainable business, with more than 80% of our expenses covered by income from trade.
