Volunteer types

Members – Members generally come from the local community of the City of Whitehorse and surrounding areas. There is no joining fee. People are generally busy, so members attend the site or undertake other tasks as and when they are able.

Members can also assist with any of a variety of specific roles that ensure the efficient running of the nursery.

Members are issued with a password to access “members only” resources. Please contact us, giving your telephone number, should you not have a password or should you have lost it.

Committee – The Nursery is run by a Committee of Management made up of elected community members and representatives from the various Bushland Management Committees (See useful links). The positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer are elected from members of the committee. The Committee meets monthly at gatherings that are open to all members.

Friends – These are people who are interested in the Nursery and receive the newsletter and other occasional items of interest.
