About us

Green Connect is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Wollongong, NSW. We create jobs and employment pathways for people experiencing barriers to employment, particularly young people and former refugees, in work that helps the planet and the community.

We do four things:

  • Grow chemical-free food at our world-leading permaculture farm in Warrawong

  • Run a great op shop in Bellambi to put things to good use
  • Offer recruitment and labour hire services to connect staff to new opportunities

We have started running events at our farm and op shop and would love to have a regular volunteer who can help us to market those events, and possibly even coordinate some.

  • The opportunity to use your skills to benefit the local community
  • Learn new skills and gain experience and confidence
  • Meet and connect with new people
