Volunteer Fundraising & Events Sub-Committee Chair – Not Far From the Tree
Not Far From The Tree is an award-winning Toronto-based fruit picking project. Our mission is to harness the power of fruit trees to create healthy, resilient, sustainable and connected communities across Toronto. We empower Torontonians to pick and share fruit that would otherwise fall to waste while providing opportunities to connect more intimately with their neighbours, environment, and food system. We act as, and empower people to be stewards of the urban orchard to ensure it’s benefits can be realized for many generations to come. We envision a Toronto where everyone has access to the urban harvest as part of a resilient, local food system that builds community, and is based on the value of shared abundance.
As a project of MakeWay Charitable Society, Not Far from the Tree is advised by a Steering Committee with responsibility for strategic direction, as well as overseeing fundraising, communications, operations, programming and finances. Currently we are seeking a new Chair for the newly formed Fundraising & Events Sub-Committee.
