Volunteers help our staff teach simple solutions on how to divert wasted food from the landfill, reduce harmful greenhouse gases like methane, and build healthy soils that feed our plants and hold water. 

At this event, you will engage community-members with our worm display, showcase our upcoming classes, and share information on other manure management related resources available to the public through Solana Center and our sponsors.

Opportunity Requirements & Important Notes

  • Attire: Wear clothes that are comfortable for standing in and appropriate to the weather. 

  • Bring: Reusable water bottle, snacks for break-time.

  • Experience Needed: At least one volunteer event with Solana Center prior, unless you are a Master Composter graduate or familiar with Solana Center. 

  • Age Requirements: Must be at least 16 years of age. All volunteers under the age of 18 must attend with a parent or guardian. 

  • Physical Requirements: Must be willing to do hands-on work with worms and other compost critters! We typically engage passer-bys with our worm display, so it helps if you are comfortable handling our stars of the show! Must be able to lift up to 30 pounds (for set-up and break-down).

  • Safety: All volunteers must bring to their volunteer shift the day of the event either: proof of vaccination, either through your issued vaccination card or through California’s Digital Covid-19 Vaccine Record, OR proof of a negative PCR test (only PCR tests will be accepted) taken within 7 days of the event.

  • Other: Please arrive on time. If your schedule changes, please let the volunteer coordinator know as soon as possible – we depend on volunteer help for a successful event and no-shows put stress on our team.
