We would like to introduce you to Jane Little, our new Garden Coordinator. Jane is volunteering as the coordinator on Mondays. Jane attended our June volunteer induction and quickly got involved in various projects in the garden. We noticed Jane had a lot of experience with organic gardening and so we quizzed her on her background. Jane shared her resume and it turns out she has been working for several years as the Garden Specialist for the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden at North Arm School. Jane is also involved with and consults to several festivals including Earth Frequency Festival and The Planting. Jane has strong experience coordinating and supporting volunteers, is highly organised and is a skilled communicator.
Jane is also currently learning about soils, systems and regenerative practices. In her 16 years living within Starlight Community Jane has learnt much about designing and planting gardens, permaculture and living sustainably.
Her role at the gardens involves participating in a monthly garden committee meeting, coordinating daily garden activities and allocating volunteers jobs and ensuring our key garden design principles are respected and implemented. Jane will also be working with our team of experienced volunteers to provide training and education to all our new volunteers.
If you’ve been considering volunteering at the gardens we hold inductions every month, our next morning tea for new Volunteers will be on Tuesday 6th October. Why don’t you come along and meet everyone
