Food Waste Warrior Volunteer

Avon Gleaning Network
Contract Type: 
South West
Contract Details: 
Completely flexible to suit the volunteer
Details of Role: 

We are looking to grow our amazing team of volunteers. We run 'gleans' on farms around the South West where we harvest surplus fruit and veg which is then redistributed to charitable food projects supporting people through food.

We operate in the wider Bristol and Bath region and lifts can be arranged to get to and from the farms. 

No experience is required - a huge part of what we do is to get people out onto farms to learn about where our food comes from! It's a great opportunity to learn about our food system and to help fight food waste. A typical glean will run from 9.30 - 13:00 and will involve getting stuck into some harvesting on a farm with plenty of tea breaks!

Being a volunteer doesn't commit you to anything - opportunities to glean come out through email and Whatsapp when we have a farm to go to. We normally operate on short notice when a grower has some veg that needs saving!

Join us in the fields!
