Eco cosmetics

We've just updated our little range of products from eco-beauty hero and Rhubarb member, Lydia. Her products are called free, soins du corps because they have no nasties added.

Visit her webshop if you want to see the full range. https://www.freesoinsducorps.com/shopall-wastefree-natural-bodycare

Rhubarb is stocking a mini capsule of her popular mango shampoo bar, conditioner bar, and lip balm, now with only 5% mark up. The bars come nude, in a Rhubarb paper bag. The little jar from the lip balm can be returned to Lydia for a (cheaper) refill.

This is to sign yourself up for particular shifts, and help volunteer manager know who will work when (especially useful if you don't intend to work once a fortnight).



Just a reminder that shifts are not flexible, everyone depends on all members being punctual.

Orders shift: 5.15-6pm, team works together to weigh extras and pack orders. Collect your items afterwards.

Clean up shift: 6-6.45pm, self-explantory. Arrive a little early to collect your items.

Directors will be on hand for the next few weeks to help everyone learn the ropes. Bonne chance!


Evening pick ups for those not working: 6 - 6.30pm. 

DIY items packed at 6.15pm, to ensure no one needs to stay beyond the end of the shift.

If you arrive after 6.30pm, your packed order will be left by the Barrett House front door (not the glass doors).

As usual, you are responsible for ensuring you have your full order.


Price reduction across all items

All markups on produce will reduce! New markups as follows:

Mixed box - 0% (was 10%, but has been set at 0 for several weeks now)

Fresh extras - 5% (was 10%)

Dry goods, packaged - 5% (was 10%)

Dry goods, weighed - 12% (was 17%, allows for shrinkage)


We love new members

Everyone in the Rhubarb community loves to see our co-op grow. At the moment, though, we don't have any behind the scenes jobs available. All new members must be able to work the lunch or evening divvy at least once a fortnight, or every second order. Some members choose to work more than this, and we appreciate their contributions all the more.

So please don't sign up thinking we can find you a job on a day other than Thursday. If you're not available, but are keen to join us, send us an email and we'll keep you in the loop if we start to offer other days: info@rhubarbfood.org.au


Meanwhile, the best way to nab a behind the scenes job? Work divvies for a while, and get to know us, and put it out there that you'd like a different job. We'll let you know when we have a vacancy.
