Volunteering with us.

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.
