Volunteering – so good for the soul

volunteer call out August 2017

No one likes to admit it, but we are getting a little desperate.

Desperate for volunteers to work in our gardens.

This Tuesday we are holding our monthly volunteer orientation hour at 11 am and invite individuals, service organisations, schools and businesses to come along to see how you might be able to help us feed your community.

Join Burnie High School students, Caterpillar, Multicap and a host of individuals who already help out at various times.  You might be able to assist once or twice a week, maybe once a month??

Whilst you are here, we have been throwing around some other ideas….Can you let us know if any of these options interest you?

Working Bee

So, this farming caper is VERY labour intensive and due to a number of factors – no funding to continue to pay our farm manager, 0/8 work for the dole participants – we are relying very much on volunteer labour to get our beds back to planting ready.  This Saturday we plan to attack the bed behind our greenhouse and our tunnel house.

We will be onsite between 9 and 2 and would LOVE some help, even if you can only come for an hour or so.  Many hands…..
