“AV is a great place to volunteer, meet new people and learn more about food growing. I had loads of fun on site, outdoors around nature and the elements – especially putting up a polytunnel 🙂 It also inspired me to do a Level 1 in horticulture and I definitely hope to do more in the future!”
– Sue, 2016 Growing Volunteer
If you fancy getting your hands dirty and can volunteer on a weekly basis for a period of 3-4 months, then you could become a Food Growing Volunteer. You would work alongside our beneficiaries- disadvantaged young adults on work placements- to grow delicious gourmet food for London restaurants. More info about the Food Growing Volunteer opportunity here.
We are looking for volunteer mentors for young adult trainees who will support our Audacious Veg trainees in developing their career plans and applying for jobs. You would meet four times with your ‘mentee’ throughout the course of their traineeship. More info about the Mentor role here.
If you’re looking for one-off volunteer opportunities, then sign up to the Audacious Ally mailing list to be contacted about opportunities to help out on site with digging, harvesting and other fun activities at crunch times. Please also sign up if you have a vehicle and would be happy to occasionally be contacted to help out with transport of materials or produce delivery.
