Local business directory now distributed

LEAP's first annual business directory has been distributed to Ashhurst and Pohangina Valley residents. There are a few extra copies being distributed in downtown Ashhurst, and the regularly updated online version can be searched at this link. If you have a business that you want to list online and in the 2018 print directory, or if you want an update in your curent listing, please get in touch, directory@loaves.org.nz. 

Invitation to participate in LEAP, market, and other projects

LEAP is a volunteer-led organisation, and we would welcome additional volunteer. There are lots of possible roles: governance, project development, market support, and more. Please get in touch! We're especially interested in new board members.

Also, if you're interested in coordinating the market, please get in touch. This role comes with a small monthly payment plus some additional funds towards personal expenses. Our current coordinator, Helen King, will remain in the role for the rest of this season (through June 2018), but expressions of interest are welcome now.
