Volunteer at the Eco Market @ South Melbourne Commons

Have you been feeling the cold lately? Finding it hard to stay warm now that the grey winter is well and truly upon us? South Melbourne Commons is the place for you.

We have lots of jobs to keep your circulation moving and your karma positive. Our tireless volunteers have been keeping warm, getting fit, having fun and occasionally getting dirty all with a free lunch.

We have knocked off a lot of small but important tasks and are getting lots done in these cold months. Doors are being painted, sanding continues unabated, much “trimming” of plants has occurred and each week we find and clear more trash then you’d believe.

I am sure the question on everyone’s lips is when can I come and help out?

Available dates are listed below. Remember if you are coming, please RSVP so we know how many people to prepare lunch for and we can get a full day of tasks ready for everyone. RSVP to Martin Pritchard ecomarket.melbourne@foe.org.au or phone 0403 440 996.

Volunteer dates for June:

Friday 18th

Sunday 20th

Friday 25th

Saturday 26th

Fridays there are people onsite from 9-5 and weekend volunteer days run from 10am – 3pm. Even if you only have an hour to spare, let us know you’re coming and we’ll make sure that hour is put to great use.

A big thanks as always, to everyone who has come and helped out at South Melbourne Commons, since the beginning and especially in the last week. If you’ve volunteered and we haven’t seen you for a while, drop us a line and let us know what you’re up to or come and see how much progress we’ve made.
