Volunteer!

Are you a member of Sims Hill with some spare time on your hands? Are you wondering what more you might be able to do to support your co-op beside picking up your weekly share of tasty veg?

Or are you not a member yet but interested in keeping our lovely local food project thriving and healthy?

Volunteer at Sims Hill – help us get vegetables into the ground and keep the farm running!

While our workshare programme operates for only certain months of the year, we welcome volunteers all year round. Our growers are on the site five days a week, and volunteers can come for just a morning or afternoon if that is more convenient. We also have monthly weekend work days.

VOLUNTEER SUNDAYS

 

We have monthly volunteer Sundays (third Sunday of the month) for everyone to join in:

*No experience necessary
*Get involved in how your dinner grows
*All welcome – members or non-members

DATES

(no Sunday in August, but there’s heaps to do and our growers are onsite 5 days a week in case you’re free for any weekday volunteering)
Sunday 17th September
Sunday 15th October
Sunday 19th November

10.30am-4pm
All work days meet at the FEED BRISTOL site
. For directions go to http://www.avonwildlifetrust.org.uk/feedbristol at the bottom of the page.

What we’ll do:
Maybe some weeding, maybe some sowing, a bit of hoeing or planting… Exact tasks will be decided by the weather, plants and Miriam, the farm manager. Whatever we do it will definitely be an enormous help to Sims Hill – many hands make light work, even just for one Sunday. We’ll provide all the tools and explanations, but we need your willing hands and smiles.

What to bring:
Warm clothes or suncream
Boots/wellies/shoes for fields that are comfortable for walking
Waterproofs if the sky looks ominous (but don’t forget we also have polytunnels+a greenhouse, we won’t make you suffer)
Something for lunch
You are welcome to bring children/friends, but please make sure that they will be warm/cool enough + happy to work with us.

What to do now:
If you have any questions, email corra.boushel[at]hotmail.co.uk You can make us look popular by joining the event on Facebook, otherwise feel free to just come along on our next Sunday.

You can see photos from previous volunteer days on our Sims Hill Shared Harvest Facebook page.
