PlantNation is involved in various types of programmes. We host tree planting days, river clean ups, community days, school days and many others. These event are always great fun but require a group effort to go really smoothly and the more volunteers we get the easier it is to have a great day helping the underprivileged, getting into nature and planting trees.
We have 3 types of roles that need filling:
- Heavy volunteer: typically the type of work we offer to communities involves some heavy lifting. If you like digging holes, moving rocks and trees and just generally being physical then you should be a heavy volunteer.
- Lite volunteer: there are always so many things to be done on a site that require a lighter touch. Painting, playing with kids, food prep, flower and vegetable planting, photography and videos and cheer leader, all these elements need enthusiasm and a lite volunteer to make sure they are taken care of.
- Satellite volunteer: People often forget how much behind the scenes work is involved to ensure the success of these projects plus not everyone wants to get their hands dirty. Social media, bookkeeping, fundraising and others are the engines that allow these projects to be as successful as they are. If your skills lie more behind a desk than out in the field and you have time then we need you as a satellite volunteer.
