Volunteering two hours of your time earns you a 20% discount off the marked price of all goods (to be used in a single shop). If you are a permanent volunteer contributing eight hours or more per month, you will receive a 20% discount every time you shop with us.
Before being able to volunteer, you must attend a 1 – 1.5 hour induction at Alfalfa House. The induction includes a guided tour of the shop, an overview of tasks to be completed and Alfalfa House policies.
Express your interest in attending an induction by completing the form on the right. On the day, ensure you are wearing closed in shoes.
We encourage all our volunteers to commit to a regular 2 hour per a week or fortnight time slot if possible. Consistency is important as we rely on our volunteers for the daily running of the co-op. We do understand that this may not be possible for everyone – if this is the case for you, please speak with our volunteer coordinator.
Our volunteers help in many areas including in the shop, with admin, in our small garden, with laundry, recycling, goods pick ups and events.
