Entry-Level Volunteer Opportunities

Friday Work Days

Dates: Every Friday throughout the year

Hours: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Want a hands-on experience with composting? Come get your hands dirty and join us on a Friday Work Day. There are several ways you can be involved.

  • Animal Care: Looking after our chickens, goats, rabbits, worms, and bees
  • Our Daily Compost: Blending greens and browns to make black gold
  • Carpentry: Supporting a variety of projects — help make a new sifter, fix paddock gates, etc.
  • Gardening: Tending to our plants and other activities for those with a green-thumb

 

Due to the high-demand of group visits, we have limited spaces for Friday Work Day volunteers. That said, if you are interested in working on a “booked” Friday Work Day, please e-mail us and we will try to work with you. 

Upon registering, you will be contacted by Earth Matter to confirm your volunteer registration.

Please let us know if you will be coming in a large group or will be traveling with children so we can plan our work day accordingly. You can note this in the comments section upon registering.
