PURPOSE OF THE ROLE:

The Greening Basildon team is working with residents in Felmores, Five Links and Lee Chapel to transform green spaces. We have volunteering roles for anybody from these areas, or nearby, who want to spend a few hours a week contributing towards designing and creating beautiful green spaces for all to enjoy. No day is alike on this project – one day you might be helping with bulb planting and the other making raised beds.

With your help and input, we want to create spaces that residents such as yourself can have ownership over and enjoy for years to come.

Volunteering is all year round and in all weather. Come out and enjoy being part of a new team, make new friends, contribute to your very own neighbourhood.

You will finish your day with a sense of achievement and will be able to share these spaces with your loved ones and immediate community.

The Volunteer will be required to:

·         Complete a basic contact form on the day they join

·         Listen to staff about safety rules or guidelines

·         Agree to volunteer as part of the team and to be respectful and polite to all who attends the session

 

MAIN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE ROLE:

 

Duties will vary, depending on the specific project on any given day. Here are some examples of the kind of tasks you can expect to get involved in:

·         Planting bulbs

·         Making raised beds from repurposed wood

·         Making bug hotels

·         Tree planting

·         Ground leveling before planting

·         Basic landscaping 

What skills do I need?

      Volunteers will need

·      An Interest in Teamwork

·      Ability to contribute with physical tasks

·      Interest in wanting to create beautiful communal spaces for the neighbourhood

·      Interest in wanting to communicate with other volunteers

A vested interest in wanting to take part e.g. because you live in the area or nearby and you want to make a difference to the area.
