At The Organic Place we have an amazing team of people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly and that your orders are delivered fresh and on time every week.
Today we wanted you to see the faces and hear the stories of those people. Meet The Organic Place team….
Partners in life and crime, Brooke and Ben are co-owners of The Organic Place and parents of three young children. They made the decision to spend their life savings and start The Organic Place two years ago and haven’t looked back since. Brooke’s background is in nursing and she responsible for the day to day running of the business whilst Ben’s job is to listen to Brooke, ha! No really, Ben has the very important job of making the very early morning run to the farmers market every Thursday to collect your orders. And for a guy who doesn’t like to shop we think he does a pretty good job! Brooke and Ben are passionate about making healthy food accessible, affordable and convenient for all.
After running her own massage and aromatherapy business using essential oils for healing for 12 years Tanya was excited to see Brooke and Ben make the decision to start a small business of their own; a business which is supporting healthy life choices and that goes hand in hand with Tanya’s own business. Tanya looks forward to every Thursday when she helps to pack and deliver The Organic Place orders. She believes the hard work put in behind the scenes is felt in every bag they deliver. She looks forward to seeing The Organic Place grow for the good of all. For those looking for a massage Tanya can be contacted through The Organic Place.
Kate believes food is medicine for the body and mind and has spent time learning and experiencing all types of natural therapy over the years. She is a Reiki practitioner and has started to study massage; that is just the first step on a long list of other modalities she is interested in studying in the future. She loves spending time with friends and family and Thursdays spent at The Organic Place are her favourite time of the week. When she grows up she dreams of living off the grid and running a B&B style retreat for like minded city dwellers to relax and recharge.
Deanne has just recently joined The Organic Place team and we’re so excited to have her on board! Deanne is a mother of two young children with a huge love for health, clean eating and fitness. She has studied nutrition and has a passionate history of working in the health food industry. She looks forward to seeing you all on her delivery runs!
Jemma has been working at The Organic Place for over year. When she first started it was a tiny operation running out of Brooke and Ben’s home where she helped to pack and deliver orders. Now, Jemma is based in the office one day a week doing admin duties. She has been working with fruit and vegetables since she was 14 years of age and it runs in the family; her mother, sister and grandmother also all work at fruit and vegetable markets and stores. She is interested in nutrition and loves to eat healthy. She enjoys the friendly and relaxed working environment of The Organic Place.
Sarah is our resident blogger. She is a wife and mother who loves to write, create and learn new things; all of which she gets to do in her role at The Organic Place. She has recently joined the team working behind the scenes and is enjoying developing new ideas and spreading the word about The Organic Place. Sarah would happily accept payment for her work in the form of Pana chocolate and The Organic Place delicious red apples (just don’t tell Brooke and Ben that!)
Jason is our tech hero. He started building websites back in 1999 and ended up majoring in marketing which combined with his web development skills helped to land him some pretty good marketing jobs. However, his passion for marketing faded and so he transitioned back into information technology. He is currently an Information Security Analyst for a large regional financial organization and the guy we call whenever our website isn’t playing nice! Jason is married with two boys and lives in Massachusetts, USA with their white husky dog, Yukon.
And let’s not forget our youngest team members, Brooke and Ben’s children; also known as The Three Musketeers. Chief taste testers, delivery run buddies and the inspiration behind The Organic Place. They keep us honest, on our toes and forever happy.
So that’s our team and they’re waiting for you- so place your order today and make sure to keep them busy!
