Society for the Local Economy of Ashhurst & Pohangina

LEAP, the Society for the Local Economy of Ashhurst and Pohangina, Inc.

Activities: LEAP oversees a comprehensive printed and online business directory for Ashhurst and Pohangina. We have several types of volunteer roles available. We need logistics support on Ashhurst Community Market Days: this could be everything from half an hour of help setting up before the market of cleaning up afterwards, to running an information booth during the market. LEAP also welcomes new participants in ongoing project development, governance, and ongoing activities. There are many opportunities for people to take a large or small role in the organisation. Events: LEAP currently runs the Ashhurst Community Market on the 2nd Saturday of every month, outside of winter. It is also piloting LOAVES, a complementary currency. LEAP welcomes new volunteers and new projects that are consistent with our mission to increase economic resilience in our local area.
