Volunteers for Gardening

Seniors & Aged Care Regular - more than 6 months Cowandilla SA

About this opportunity

Many residents have an interest in gardening, and you would be a welcome companion, together planting herbs and flowers, and possibly preparing raised garden beds. All gardening items are supplied.

If you enjoy the outdoors, chatting, and generally engaging socially with people we would like to chat with you.

The position would best suit those with gardening skills, patience, empathy, and a passion for healthy ageing.

Additional requirements

*All volunteers require a National Police Clearance for the purposes of Aged Care, which will be facilitated by Calvary, and evidence of vaccination against influenza.

Please Note:
* During the Covid-19 pandemics, organisations should be providing all necessary Covid-19 safety protection measures for volunteers following the advice of both the Sate or Territory Governments and the Federal Government. Your safety and wellbeing is your priority. Familiarise yourself with the most up-to-date requirements and advice from the Australian and NT and SA State Governments.
* As each organisation provides different levels/types of insurance, volunteers are reminded to check with the organisation as to the type of insurance provided for volunteers (e.g. Volunteer Personal Accident Insurance).
* Best practice volunteer involvement recommends that a volunteer role should not be more than 15-16 hours per week.
