CALL OUT for Seed Library volunteers!

9 Apr 21

Are you interested in seed-saving, growing your own food, and contributing to building an accessible, resilient and (bio)diverse community hub? Take a look at our Seed Library Volunteer role description!

Our Seed Library project has now officially started, and we are looking for motivated volunteers to join our budding Seed Library team.

Over the next year, we will be building a physical seed library to store and share open-pollinated seeds with the community, organising seed sharing circles, growing and harvesting seeds in our garden, and running community events and workshops to creatively explore the horticultural, environmental, personal, social and political aspects of seeds.

You are invited and encouraged to bring your own ideas, creativity, experience and dreams to this project, and we will do our best to provide any training you need for your role. Hannah, the Seed Library Project Co-ordinator will support you throughout. There are a number of different roles available for all levels of ability. Your responsibilities will be adapted to your interests, skills, capacity and seasonal requirements and will very likely evolve throughout the project. You will be part of the wider team of diverse Salisbury Centre volunteers and will have a chance to collaborate with other volunteers in the garden, at community celebrations and events and be part of the Edinburgh Seed Network.

If you’d like to know more, have any questions, or would like to get involved, please get in touch with Hannah at hannah@salisburycentre.org
