Do you want to help bring local food to local people, while earning money and getting a great discount off your own Ooooby box? We're looking for some more packers! We'd start off with you in a relief position, which could move to a permanent weekly position when one opens up. We pack in Mt Wellington on Tuesdays, starting at 7am and going for about 5-6 hours, depending on the week. We pay $16/hour, and give a 40% discount off any produce you buy, and 20% off extras like bread,…

The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.
