Our regular (weekly) volunteer opportunities
Love Your Streams Day
Help bring health back to our urban streams by joining Pam or Gabi on a Love Your Streams Day!
These days happen every Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 3pm. As well as learning about the technicalities of stream restoration and monitoring, you will be sure to have a good time working with like minded people to keep our streams beautiful.
Contact: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Native Plant Nursery
In 2016 EcoMatters started our very own Native Plant Nursery. It’s Project Manager Chrissy is doing an amazing job of establishing the nursery with 5 000 plants already on their journey to a restoration project. You can help Chrissy to pot these plants as they grow on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning 10am – 12pm. You’ll find out lots about native plants along the way.
Gardening at the Centre
The EcoMatters Environment Centre in New Lynn is surrounded by gardens including natives, fruit trees and vegetables. It has been lovingly tended according to permaculture principles by Meg for over 10 years. Your help tending to this garden would be much appreciated. Regular volunteer days are Wednesday 10am – 12pm. Or arrange with Meg for another time.
Other opportunities include:
- Weeding and planting bees
- Stream clean-ups and restoration events
- Waste minimisation projects
- Administration assistance in the office
- Research and sustainability projects
- Helping at our events, festivals and workshops
Let us know what interests you when you register. You will be rewarded with the best feeling ever, while you share your knowledge, develop skills & opportunities, and make a bunch of new friends while you’re at it. (Oh, and the chance to engage in epic chats over tea or coffee, in beautiful places deserves to be mentioned).
We are very proud to be able to offer a internship opportunities at EcoMatters. This is an opportunity to really become a part of the team while honing your skills in a certain area of interest. Often this is around the office with Marketing, Admin, Research etc. We take in interns all year round for a range of areas though places are limited. We also take interns from all parts of the world so don’t let geography be an issue. If you are interested to find out more about how it all works, email Barbara at: email@example.com
