To become a volunteer, you must be a member. While Alfalfa House has a number of paid staff, we rely on considerable support from our network of committed member volunteers. Tasks within the shop include general refilling of produce in the store, assisting with the fruit and vegetable orders, cleaning, gardening and helping customers. We also require a range of specialist skills for our working groups and other roles. Read more information about different volunteer positions.
Volunteering two hours of your time earns members a 25% discount off the marked price of all goods (to be used in a single shop). If you are a regular volunteer contributing eight hours or more per month, you will shop with a 25% discount.
Before being able to volunteer, you must attend an induction lasting 1 hour at Alfalfa House. The induction includes a guided tour of the shop and introduction to the policies and procedures and volunteer code of conduct.
Inductions are held every Saturday at 10.30am, and on the first Thursday of every month at 6.30pm. No booking is required for our inductions, but please ensure you wear enclosed shoes for the induction.
