Get Involved

The Beechworth Food Coop is always interested in hearing from those who are keen to get involved. To make these inspiring events happen we need people behind the scenes and on the ground. If you have 30mins to spare for a particular event or interested in being on the board, we would love to hear from you - simply contact BFC via this link -

Getting involved is a great way to contribute to your community and meet like minded people, and have fun along the way. The more people who put their hand up, the more the BFC can contribute in this space.
