Cultivate Cochrane - volunteer recruitment

Wednesday, Sep 20, 2023 at 12:00AM Repeating event

Thanks to a Canada Healthy Communities Initiative grant, Cultivate Cochrane has brought an education greenhouse on wheels to the streets of Cochrane! Similar to the large community hub we’re planning, the “Passive Solar Roller” uses passive solar design to demonstrate a sustainable way to extend the growing season in our challenging climate. Built on a trailer, the greenhouse can travel to travel wherever we wish to showcase it and provide hands-on programming on food growing, nutrition, and resiliency.

We’re thrilled to have already offered regular family and youth programming through BGC Cochrane & Area, the Family Resource Network, plus several local schools. But you’re likely to see us at the farmers market, public events, and more youth and seniors’ venues in the future!

Our Vision - What we want Cochrane to be
Cochrane and area is a vibrant, collaborative place where sustainable agriculture is widely understood and increasingly adopted in our challenging climate. Infrastructure exists so nutritious produce is regeneratively grown and accessible to all.

Our Mission
Cultivate Cochrane is a non-profit society that empowers people to grow their own food through demonstration and education. We collaborate to increase food sovereignty, climate resilience, health and wellbeing.

Does Cultivate Cochrane’s vision resonate with you and you’d like to help propel it forward in the community? Are you interested in meeting like-minded individuals and putting your time into positive solutions? You may be a great Cultivate Cochrane volunteer candidate! In addition to board members, we’re always welcoming community help with the many aspects of operating our mobile greenhouse and progressing towards our goal of a passive solar community greenhouse hub. Tasks we are currently in need of include:

watering & plant care
grant writing
policy writing

If this feels like a fit to you, we’d love to put your skills and passion to work! Reach out to us through the website provided and we’ll be in touch.
