Join the team

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is powered by an energetic team of innovative individuals who enjoy the challenge of this ever-changing environment. Keep an eye on this page for upcoming opportunities and join our mailing list.

The Foundation currently has a volunteering opportunity for the next 4-6 weeks, with the possibility of ongoing assistance. We’re looking for strong communicators and researchers to conduct online research and telephone calls to contribute to an important strategic project. Ideally the volunteer(s) would commence work immediately, working from our office in Collingwood one to two days per week.  To express your interest, email application@kitchengardenfoundation.org.au with your CV and a brief description your skills and previous experience.
