Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization! Everyone is a volunteer who works with We Grow Food, including the founders. We promote a barrier-free, inclusive environment for our volunteers by promoting a diverse community within our organization, including Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), New Canadians, Refugees and people who identify as LGBTQ+. We offer a variety of activities for everyone; for any age group, background, and ability level.
Some of the roles that volunteers can carry out includes:
- Preparing the gardens
- Garden maintenance
- Communications and outreach
We try to show our appreciation to our volunteers everyday and we also organize an annual Volunteer Appreciation Event.
