From Paddock To Plate (FP2P) Accreditation Program

  • Type:Local Focus
  • Local Clubs:Food & Wine

Details

Description

“…the way farmers’ markets should be”

The FP2P Program distinguishes authentic farmers’ market stallholders from other market participants. It works to recognise and promote as well as increase the profit and viability of our genuine producers. Members are provided with exclusive on-site signage and media exposure, as well as the right to display the unique FP2P Accreditation symbol and stamp of approval at their market stall. The accreditation program ensures that the public are only buying from genuine producers, giving them the rightful chance to be educated on where their food comes from and how it is grown, raised or made, as well as meeting customer’s expectations of the way authentic farmers’ market should be.

One of the FP2P Program’s aims is to continue to build the “social aspect” and “sense of community” at all farmers’ markets by encouraging customers to take more interest in the items they are buying and ask more questions about the origin of the food. Customers will come to you for information and understanding, with the reassurance you are an authentic stallholder. Producers should see an involvement in the FP2P Program as a unique chance to proudly educate the public about life on the land and take this opportunity to promote the love, passion and dedication that goes into producing food for our country.

FP2P understands the work involved in attending a farmers’ market, so make sure you to get the most out of it by becoming accredited!

Some of the many benefits provided to accredited stallholders include:

*Your own FP2P stall sign and certificate

*Widespread media coverage all year round

*Several radio interviews

*Your profile and selected products promoted on the FP2P website (www.frompaddocktoplate.com.au)

*Editorials in selected newspapers and magazines

*A short video filmed on farm for promotional purposes

*An opportunity to feature in the proposed FP2P book sequel and documentary for promotional purposes

*Social media coverage on Twitter and Facebook (a way to communicate with your customers)

*Free annual subscription to the FP2P newsletter

*Free communication with your customers via the FP2P contact database

*Notification of new market stalls available throughout WA farmers' markets

*Potential to sell more product

*Reduced competition with re-sellers

*An ability to sell your seconds

*Better control over educating customers

*More freedom of supply

George Jones Child Advocacy Centre (CAC) - Armadale

The George Jones Child Advocacy Centre is the first of its kind in Australia.

  • Charity:Youth Welfare
  • Type:Local Focus

Details

Description

Our child focused services provide holistic care to meet the needs of each child and family with compassion, understanding and skill; and to strengthen our community's response to the safety, treatment and wellbeing of children who have suffered trauma from abuse.

The George Jones Child Advocacy Centre was opened on Tuesday 1st March by the Honorable Colin Barnett, Premier of Western Australia.  It was a celebration of innovation and success for Parkerville Children and Youth Care, local agencies and government partners who began in 2007 to design, develop and implement this new service for children and young people who have been harmed.Right from the beginning of the George Jones Child Advocacy Centre we have involved children and young people in planning and designing the building and choosing the art work inside the centre. They told us they wanted bright and friendly spaces, colourful murals with lots of creatures, bugs and water.

Involving young people was again very important in our latest project, the urban art for the long exterior wall of the building. Artists Darren Hutchens, Dan Duggan and Lawry Halden facilitated workshops with young people, encouraged their ideas and harnessed these into a cohesive and creative design.  The dragon represents Parkerville, a strong creature who supports and guides children and helps them to go on a journey of recovery from hurt and harm; the children are in charge and tell the dragon how to help them.  The budding young artists named the dragon Parky which is how the kids colloquially refer to us.

  • Type:Club,Volunteer,Association,Local Focus
  • Local Clubs:Arts,Music

Details

  • Established:1982
  • Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts

Description

The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.

As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more  Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.

Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.

PlaceScape delivers services through a holistic project management approach.

  • Type:Association,Non Government,Local Focus

Details

Description

The idea of PlaceScape was born in 2008 during conversations between directors May Carter and Sabrina Hahn. Both were concerned about areas of Perth where vast tracts of bushland and other green spaces seemed to be disappearing under a sea of roofs and concrete streetscapes.

May had been working on a research project exploring links between resident perceptions of urban green spaces and self-reported health. Substantially better general health, quality of life and community connection was reported by people living near parklands that were valued, useable and provided a diverse range of settings and opportunities for physical activity, relaxation and social interaction.

Sabrina is widely known for her commitment to WA gardening and was concerned about the loss of trees and fewer gardens – in both private and public spaces – and about design of new parks being unsuitable for the WA climate and lifestyle.

May and Sabrina were aware that many people wanted to do something about growing greener places to live, work and play but often don’t know how to go about it. They used their extensive network of contacts to bring together likeminded people to co-direct this venture.

And that’s how PlaceScape was created – from the passion of a small group of people who want to save the world one tree at a time!
