Be a Volunteer

Our garden was founded by Volunteers and this ethos lies at the core of everything we do.

Our Board members are volunteers, drawn from Volunteers.

Besides contributing towards the upliftment of the homeless and to a more healthy and just food system in Somerset West, there are many benefits to volunteering at the garden: There’s making friends, gaining practical skills and knowledge, and also the less tangible, less quantifiable sense of participating in something with a much bigger purpose than just the daily grind.
There is much work to be done. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form below and you will be contacted to attend an orientation session to get you started – it’s that simple.

Help Manage the Garden

Each day of the week, Monday to Friday, someone is needed to manage the gardeners

Duties include:

  • Handing out the tasks for the day
  • Making sure watering is done
  • Making sure the attendance register is completed
  • Collecting the lunch at 11:30 am
  • Documenting virtual tokens the gardeners have earned
  • Locking up.

Volunteer at Harvest day

The vegetables are harvested each Tuesday from 9 am till 11 am. We need help picking the vegetables and bunching them. If you are only able to help for a few hours then this is a great opportunity to get involved. Please contact us if you would like to help.

Growing Food, Growing People.
