Volunteer at Alfalfa House

Alfalfa House relies on the help of our fantastic volunteer network to run smoothly and we are always looking for new members to help out with a range of tasks both in and out of the store.

Volunteer discount

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.

Volunteer inductions

We run regular induction sessions at Alfalfa House for new volunteers. These 1-1.5 hour sessions include a guided tour of the shop, an overview of regular tasks and Alfalfa House policies. Express your interest in volunteering by signing up for an induction session with the form on the right.  On the day, ensure you are wearing closed in shoes.

Volunteer positions

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.

If you have already been inducted and are looking to commit to a shift, please contact us to talk to our volunteer coordinator about what help is currently needed

Interested in attending an induction?

Please note that due to COVID19 restrictions, we will be capping inductions at 5 people per induction. You will receive an email in the days following your registration to let you know if your attendance has been confirmed. If you are no longer able to attend an induction, we ask that you let us know by responding to that email so that we can go to the next person in line.
