Coming as a volunteer, we ask that you bring sturdy footwear/gumboots, and appropriate clothes that don’t mind getting dirty!
It is useful to us if you tell us a little about yourself - your skills, work experience, especially work on the land, and if you have had community involvement before.
Our work here varies considerably, from gardening, farmwork, scrub clearing, pruning, painting, track maintenance, firewood gathering, cleaning - to many other possibilities. We hope you'll enjoy learning some new skills, and find satisfaction in helping to get the community work done.
Woofers work under the direction of various Rainbow members, four hours per day, Monday through Friday. Sometimes, we learn new skills from our volunteers too!
Golden Bay is a lovely area to explore during your weekends off. It helps to have your own car.
Staying in a private home.
Sometimes community members have spaces available in their own homes.
You may be able to negotiate to stay as a private homestay guest, or as someone’s personal Woofer.
