Fruit and Nut team casual volunteer

South Alive's mission statement: Empowered by our Strengths as a community, we will build a place to live and work that engenders pride and inspires us. South Alive run a number of projects and events and have specific action teams with volunteers working on 'beautification, fruit and nut orchards, housing and events".

Helping out with the Fruit and Nut team working bees usually involves:

  • weeding
  • mulching
  • tidying edges
  • checking the trees
  • pruning
  • thinning current and gooseberry bushes

They are also a pretty social bunch too so usually you would enjoy a cuppa afterwards.


South Alive can provide some education and guidance around what to do, so you don't need to be a plant or gardening expert. They are just looking for people who are physically able and willing to help.

You must wear appropriate clothing and footwear and preferably have your own transport to get to the working bees.
If you have some gardening tools you can bring along too that would be helpful but not essential.

Time commitment

Usually 1-2 hours at a time.
Working bees are held during the week or on weekends, and are planned at short notice (due to being weather dependent).

Getting started

The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
