Environmental Weed Control Work

The Staveley Camp forest has a number of invasive weeds, many of which (notably contoneaster) are altering the fundamental structure of the forest. Where areas of the forest have been cleared of contoneaster it is obvious that this weed, when established, prevents the growth of any other species. Work to control the weeds is continuing in the Staveley Forest on a weekly basis and we would love your help! We use hand tools (loppers, secateurs, hand saws) and gel herbicide in a method known as 'cut and paste'. The work can be quite hard and heavy, but you can work at your own pace and there is no pressure to meet KPIs! The location is beautiful and you get to hang out with the birds and the bush. We can provide all the tools, gloves and protective eyewear, although if you have your own LEATHER work gloves (many of the weeds are spikey) bring these. Strong shoes and work clothes a must. Bring your own lunch or take a break at the Staveley Store just down the road :-) If you can make your own way to Staveley Camp and would like to spend some hours/days/years! helping clear weeds, please get in touch to arrange a time that suits us both. gen de spa 0211 345 802

Part-time Shift Managers Needed

On The House is in need of a few reliable shift managers to lead service. This is a part-time role managing shifts as little as once a month to once a week with shifts starting about 2.30pm and ending about 6pm. The role consists of delegating tasks and coordinating with volunteers on shift. Shifts can be busy with shift managers dealing with volunteers, suppliers, visitors and handling last-minute changes. You will come in for a service shift or two to get an idea of how we operate before taking on any shift manager duties.  On The House is a non-religious, a-political charitable group that was started to create a space for the community to interact, build relationships and to serve free surplus food to those in need. We are part of the Free Store Movement in New Zealand and are completely run by volunteers. We collect food that would otherwise go to waste and redistribute it to anybody who is willing to patiently line up. We are all about Less Waste & More Taste!

Volunteers for food pick up

On The House was started to create a space for the community to interact, build relationships and to serve free surplus food to those in need. We are part of the Free Store Movement in New Zealand and are completely run by volunteers. We collect food that would otherwise go to waste and redistribute it to those who identify themselves as in need from a central location. Our charitable organisation is seeking a food pickup driver to pickup from a selection of food suppliers every week on Thursdays. Food is then dropped to our venue and redistributed from there. Pickup drivers do not have to participate in service - just pickup and drop off kai. The regular shift runs from about 3PM to about 4:30PM. Petrol is not provided. If you'd like to learn more, feel free to email us at info@onthehourse.org.nz!
