Green-Fingered Volunteers Wanted
Are you, or is anyone you know, interested in volunteering in your local community and passionate about composting? Then you can be a South Northamptonshire Master Composter! We are about to start our third round of recruitment, so now’s the time to sign up if you’re keen.
As part of the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership, we are looking for people who would like to help us spread the home composting message in South Northamptonshire. Volunteers will receive free training and resources, as well as ongoing support from a co-ordinator. In return, Master Composter are required to spend a minimum of 30 hours over 12-24 months spreading the composting message in their local community, gaining recognised volunteer experience.
Over the last few months, our Master Composters have run leaflet drops using our home composter offer leaflet, held roadshows at local gardening shows, hosted composting tea parties, spoken in school assemblies, and have written articles for their local church/parish/village magazines. There are so many ways they can get involved, and we have had some fantastic feedback about how rewarding the scheme is.
For more information and to register your interest, please contact Waste Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01327 322344 and ask to speak to Waste Services.
