Description

The Allotment Market Stall provides good-quality, well-priced, locally grown fruit and vegetables and reduces waste. We have opportunities this season for volunteers to be a part of running our veg stall in the parks (Duthie Park, Seaton Park and/or Victoria Park).

Main tasks involve:
*Sell fruit and vegetables to the public
*Help record amounts sold
*Help promote The Allotment Market Stall and its values of growing and eating good stuff

Full training will be given. Volunteers will be accompanied and supported at all times.

This is a great opportunity to:
*Make a difference in your city and the environment
*Be a part of a community of growers
*Meet people and grow in confidence
