Volunteers help our staff engage workshop attendees through our lecture and composting demonstrations, teach sustainable practices that support a healthy planet, and inspire others to adopt sustainable practices in their own lives.
Volunteer support can also include the following:
- Setting up / breaking down demo site
- Advancing PowerPoint slides or flipping our educational chart
- Engaging attendees in activities related to the lesson
