The EarthLinks Workshop runs from 9:30 to 11:30 am Tuesday through Thursday. Workshop Volunteers can assist with food preparation and sanitization for breakfast, setting up tables and preparing materials for products, crafting products alongside program participants, general organization and clean-up of the garage space, sorting of finished products, and other tasks as directed by the EarthLinks Program Team. We welcome your creativity and expertise! Skills needed the most are:
-Sewing skills, ability to work with sewing machines
-Organization skills and a desire to help with deep cleaning. We know this is not a fun job, but is a HUGE help to us!
-Cooking and food preparation
-Woodworking skills to help make many of our woodworking products!
Starting in late February all the way until late October we also need help in our organic Peace Garden. Volunteers can assist the Program Team with sifting and turning compost, transplanting flowers and vegetables, picking flowers and foliage for use in the workshop, watering, weeding, natural pest treatments, general cleanup or maintenance, and other garden work as directed by the Program and Garden Director.
Please come dressed and prepared for outside garden work by wearing comfortable clothes that you are okay with getting dirty, wear close toed shoes, and bring a water bottle and sunscreen! Many of the garden tools that you need will be provided to you by EarthLinks, but feel free to bring your own if you would like!
Starting from about May all the way to October, EarthLinks relies greatly on larger volunteer groups to tackle our larger summer garden and maintenance projects. EarthLinks generally works with volunteer groups as small as 5 people, all the way to 20-person groups. If you think your workplace, church, or community would like to get involved in this way, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get you on our summer work group schedule!
We are in great need of a volunteer that has experience with graphic design and web development to help the EarthLinks Marketing Team with our website, flyers, product labels, merchandise design, sales brochures, and other visual materials.
Preferred experience with but not limited to:
-Avery online label printing program
If you’re handy, we can always use help maintaining our office and workshop. We already have many tools here!
-Woodworking and carpentry skills
-Ability to lift 50lbs or over
-Knowledge of sprinkler systems especially in-ground hose watering systems
We are always in need of volunteers who can help folks within our community move. This may require lifting heavy boxes or furniture and driving or providing a large truck. If you are interested in this position your contact info will be placed on a separate contact list – we will alert you when there is a need for assistance!
