Our regular volunteering sessions are on Wednesday mornings from 9:30am to 12pm, at our nursery in Aranda. This group help out with seasonal nursery tasks such as weeding, propagating, and thinning our native seedlings. We also provide morning tea as a thank you and social catch up. If you are available to attend our Wednesday group, please see staff when you arrive and they will be able to show you around. It is also advisable to come along around 10am on your first day, so they have set up tasks for other volunteers and will then have the time to show you around properly.

For safety reasons, it is a requirement to wear a hat and sturdy closed toe shoes to these sessions. Long pants and long sleeves, are also recommended.

Some lifting and standing for long periods, may be required. You do not need any experience just a love of nature and the outdoors.

If you come along to these sessions, there is also the potential to be able to join our Thursday 'Green Team'.
