Outreach Support: Booth at Vons – Rancho Bernardo

Jul 13, 2023 11:30AM—4:30PM


11986 Bernardo Plaza Dr Rancho Bernardo, CA 92128

Cost $0.00


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 assist staff in engaging community-members with our worm display, showcase our upcoming classes, and share information on other composting resources available to the public through Solana Center and the City of San Diego. During this event, we will be tabling outside of a Vons offering environmental education and resources to shoppers. 

Volunteer Shifts

  • 11:30 am to 4:30 pm (if we can get two volunteers for this event we will split it in half)
  • Option to bring a guest available, contact volunteer@solanacenter.org to let coordinator know.

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: Volunteers should possess basic knowledge of the composting process and have a passion for topics in sustainability. Additional training documents provided on event day.

  • 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).
