The Friendship Garden in Auburn welcomes newly arrived migrants, refugees, people seeking asylum, and CALD communities that may not have access to a garden in their home. The community garden has been designed to support people to feel connected, grow local and traditional food, share or gain new knowledge about gardening and permaculture principles, and to build on their existing skills.
The volunteer will support newly arrived migrants and refugees to grow their own food and foster a sense of belonging. The volunteer will assist the gardener and participants with gardening and other horticulture related activities, preparing lunch, facilitating connections between participants, and offering community language assistance.
Volunteers must be able to attend the Friendship Garden on a Thursday.
