On-ground Volunteering with FMV under Covid-19 rules.
The distance rules of 1.5 metres will be enforced on all sites.
No car-pooling is allowed.
Each site will have signs to indicate that volunteering is happening.
There can be no sharing of tools.
FMV will provide metal buckets with the necessary tools for our regular working bee crew to take home and bring each time. You will be told each time what tools you’ll need to bring.
You must register with Maelor before the day and the first 10 will be able to volunteer for that day (until the number is increased).
To volunteer on days we’re working with Parks Victoria you will probably need to be registered on Park Connect. More details later.
Volunteers must always wear a mask. We will have extras if you require a new one during the day.
Hand sanitisers must be carried by all volunteers and used when required. (We have ones you can take home.)
Volunteers must bring their own gardening gloves, be wearing sturdy shoes, and have long trousers and a long sleeve top.
Please carry your own bottle of water and wear a hat and sunscreen as we are now
volunteering in the warmer weather.
You will need to bring your own pen for signing in, your cup for morning tea
and whatever food you wish to have at morning tea.
FMV will probably be still allowed to provide tea, coffee, milk, sugar and hot water.
Morning tea will involve sitting on portable stools placed 1.5 metres apart.
For the comfort of all, please leave your pets at home.
Children under 16 years of age must be supervised by a responsible adult.
Sites vary due to weather conditions and what maintenance is required.
