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. We also have monthly weekend work days (see below for the schedule).

VOLUNTEER DAYS

JUNE VOLUNTEERING SPECIAL
To help with the planting, we invite all members and interested folk to a bonanza of volunteering in June!
Volunteer week 3-9th June
Saturday volunteer bonanza 10th June

Even if you can’t make it all day, every pair of hands (even for only an hour or two) will get more of our tasty dinner in the ground. Please follow the above links to find out more.

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

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 + 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.
