Who are we looking for?
Are you passionate about tinkering with old equipment? Fancy fixing an old chair or benches? How about small-scale construction using recycled timber? Do you have an affinity for reinvigorating old tools and giving them a second life? Then we have the perfect volunteer position for you!
Northey Street City Farm is currently calling out for keen volunteers who want to assist the Site Team to maintain our facility.
Wednesday 8:30 am -12:30 pm (flexible) though we also welcome people to come on Tuesdays.
Assist the Site Team in the various maintenance activities including:
Fix tools and equipment (mostly manual hand tools – rakes, spades, etc.)
Painting and varnishing
Carry out small-scale construction and repairs on existing buildings.
Have good OH&S awareness.
Where possible, we ask for a minimum of 4-6 months of weekly volunteering to learn procedures and get to know the lay of the site and the community.
Wear enclosed shoes and gloves. NSCF can provide gloves if you require them.
We will arrange for you to attend an induction process so that you can be covered under the farm’s insurance.
This is a great way to get hands-on experience, and also be part of the of urban agriculture movement!
