Friends of the Earth is looking for volunteers to help educate visitors at Bloom in the Park in Phoenix Park, Dublin from June 1-5 . We’ll be presenting our postcard garden ‘ The Bright Side of Life’ to Bloom visitors and
educating them about the need to create chemical-free food, shelter and nesting spots for beneficial insects in their gardens.

Volunteers will engage festival-goers from our show garden, explaining the concept behind the installation and offering gardening tips along with encouraging visitors to get involved with Friends of the Earth’s work. You’ll receive training from our garden designer, RTE SuperGarden finalist and permaculture specialist, Suzie Cahn, and our Chairperson Dr. Cara Augustenborg. In addition, you’ll get free admission into Bloom for the day in exchange for volunteering approximately 4 hours at the garden.

So if you’re a nature lover who wants to help us spread the love, please complete this short form by Monday, May 22 nd and let us know the dates and times you are available to volunteer. There are three shifts to choose from each day June 1-5 ( Morning: 8:30-12:00; Mid-day: 11:45-15:00; and Afternoon: 14:45-18:30 ). If you are available for more than one shift or more than one day, please tick more than one box!
