Online Store launch
Second Nature launches online store
Local Brisbane organic farm at Narangba, Second Nature Organics has launched a new online store to encourage more customers to eat healthy food and to help create jobs for young locals.
The farm currently provides training and employment for four young people in conjunction with non-profit disability employment provider Epic Assist.
“We certainly have more candidates than placement opportunities”, says Epic Assist’s Outer North Brisbane, Office Coordinator, Angie Brazier.
“It can often be difficult to find suitable employment and training opportunities for our clients.
“So to find a local organic farm willing to work with us, presents opportunities for our clients to gain skills and experiences valuable to their future endeavours”, she says.
Participants do a variety of tasks including planting, picking, watering, applying organic fertilisers and mulch and helping manage pests and weeds.
All of this supports the production of certified organic produce, home delivered to local customers through the company’s online store www.secondnatureorganics.com.au.
“Organics is ideal for anyone who values their health and people with certain health conditions who need to make sure they have a diet free from chemicals”’ says Elicia O’Brien, Farm Manager.
“Our online store offers products from our farm and other certified organic producers to offer customers a wide variety of organic foods and lifestyle products.
Every box we sell helps support jobs for local young people so it’s a win-win”, says Elicia.
A launch was held at the farm on Sunday 28 October, attended by 60 people including team member Lincoln Inger and Ginny Baker, Epic Assist support worker (pictured).
