Fort St John Trade Show – April 13-15, 2018
Needed: A couple of volunteers who love to connect with people and have a great sense of humour. NEAT will be at the Fort St John Trade Show and would appreciate grately some help telling our story and connecting with our community. Contact karen@neat.ca for details.

Garden Opening Day – May 7 to 12, 2018 (Weather permitting) 
While we are experiencing some difficulties with the installation of spring this year, we are planning (fingers crossed) for a work bee to open all of the school gardens and the main Community Garden. We are calling all shovelers, diggers, mulchers, mixers, and tidiers to help! Throughout the summer, these gardens will reach more than 2000 students and community members, growing and donating local food. Help us grow a neat future, contact Karen@neat.ca to find out more.

NEAT Finds
Are you a thrift store connoiseur? NEAT Finds is always looking for volunteers to help sort, tag, and hang donations. No special arrangements required, just drop by during store hours.

Board of Directors
The NEAT Board of Directors is recruiting members. This commitment involves attending one meeting a month. The Board is looking for general members and a treasurer. If you are interested, please contact ed@neat.ca with your resume.

Garden Maintenance
NEAT maintains the school gardens at Bert Ambrose, Alwin Holland, Robert Ogilvie, Duncan Cran, and Central Schools in Fort St John, and the Tremblay garden at the Community Gardens in Dawson Creek. If you have some time to weed or water, we would be happy to have the help. This commitment is for 1+ hours per week and is flexible. For more information, please contact Karen@neat.ca.

Program Prep
Perfect for a crafter, we are looking for someone to help prep crafts, activities, and presentations ahead of time. This would be perfect for a parent, older students, or a retiree and will involve collecting and preparing supplies for use in upcoming events. This commitment is variable and would be approximately 2-5 hours as needed. We have an inclusive, family friendly office where small children are more than welcome.

Misc. Construction
On occasion (more frequently than you might think) we need shelving, storage, or other items created. If you’re handy and have a couple of hours here and there, you would be perfect for this role. For more information, please contact info@neat.ca.

 

 

*Because many of NEAT’s programs involve children, all volunteers interacting with the public must have a criminal record check completed which includes the vulnerable sector. Record checks are free for volunteers through the local RCMP.
