On-ground Volunteering with FMV under Covid-19 rules
Each site will have signs indicating that volunteering is occurring, with some arrows to pointing you in the right direction.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own gardening gloves if possible, wear suitable shoes, (runners are fine) and wear long trousers and a long sleeve top. As the weather is warming (a bit) you may need a hat, sunscreen and your water bottle. Shorts, mini’s and thongs just won’t cut it!
Social distancing of 1.5 metres is still required on all sites and FMV recommend using a hand sanitiser especially if sharing tools. Feel free to wear a mask.
FMV provide metal buckets with tools for regular working bee crew
We will provide tea, coffee, milk, sugar, and hot water, but please bring your own cup as well as any additional snacks needed to help keep your energy levels up!
Please leave your four-legged furry friends at home unless they can dig holes, weed, plant or serve morning tea and do the dishes!
Children under 16 years of age must be supervised by an adult.
Sites vary due to weather conditions and maintenance required, but are generally flat and easily accessible.
