Volunteer needed to run the 2019 fruit harvest

Abundance London is looking for a volunteer to run the 2019 Fruit Harvest (September-October) in Chiswick. The organisation has been putting together groups of fruit pickers with people who can’t cope with their garden’s bountiful harvest for several years. Now they need help.

Job Overview: A unique and wonderful opportunity to gain skills in management, horticulture and education whilst bringing joy to the local communityDBS certificate required. Several times a week you will take the tree picking equipment to the local primary school and escort a school group and their teacher to a tree owner’s garden, walking distance away. You will teach the children and supervise as they collect the harvest and bring all the fruit back to the school. You will be managing the online database of fruit tree owners (private individuals with a large fruit tree in their garden) and schedule tree picking sessions with several local school groups.
