Perth City Farm would not be here without generations of fabulous volunteers.
The farm started with dedicated volunteers to help clear the site... then they began with the construction on the garden beds and the creation of the nursery... then it was creating art, maintaining this beautiful site and
helping at the various festivals and events we were hosting at Perth City Farm.
Today we have an awesome team of volunteers who work in structured roles to look after our chickens, grow plants in the nursery, help out in the office, sell our produce at the farmers market, work on our city greening program at the urban orchard and QV1 rooftop garden, work with our soils, and help out with our twilight events.
If you would like to volunteer with us please have a look at our job descriptions below as these outline the kind of tasks you will be doing and the sort of skills you would benefit from having. Once you find the spot that'll best suit you, send an email via the relevant link and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you think you suit multiple positions, please include this in your email. Please also include a phone number in your email, as that will make the process a bit quicker.. (we are all part time staff and are often out in the garden instead of in front our computers!)
See the below table for an outline as to what days the different roles are run. These sometimes change, but it can be helpful if you know you have a particular availability or interest. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out, we value our volunteers and want to assist in making your involvement both possible and enjoyable.
There are other options to get involved, such as the historical video project, that come up from time to time. If you like helping with events (like our upcoming 25th birthday celebration) or have a special skill you’d like to offer, please don’t hesitate to send us an email with your thoughts and availability and we will get back to you…
