It’s about that time of year again where we get our garden going! However, this year we are seeking your help to find gardeners interested in helping to coordinate the garden. These are seasonal (April–October) volunteer positions and can be shared, but we are looking for at least two main roles to be filled: Garden Coordinator and an Operations Coordinator.
The Cloverdale Community Garden (CCG) is a combination of individual garden plots and a common area dedicated to address food security in Edmonton. This common plot is used to grow food that is directly donated to the Edmonton Food Bank, which sets the CCG apart from other community gardens.
Garden Coordinator: Your main role is to provide communications and coordination amongst the gardeners. You’ll help make sure everyone knows when spring tilling is happening, or that the water tank is being repaired, or similar news. You’ll also act as the liaison between garden members, the Community League, and Sustainable Food Edmonton (SFE).
Operations Coordinator: You handle the day-to-day operations of the garden. Your role includes liaising with the Bennett Centre, scheduling maintenance of the water system and equipment, and coordinating the work-bees and garden work teams on site.
Please consider volunteering for either of these roles so we can keep the community garden growing! If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Reg at firstname.lastname@example.org
