We are a volunteer led project, dependant on the commitment of our volunteer team. We need reliable, environmentally minded people who want to learn new skills and knowledge as well as to teach others about sustainable food issues.
We also want to spread the word and tell the whole University and our local community about sustainable food and our project. We need volunteers to organise and arrange regular events.
We are looking for business minded students who are interested in the Environment and keen to create their own social enterprise. Whether it be using the produce from our Plot to bag up and sell salad bags, make and sell jam or chutney or grow on chilli plants for sale. Start up your own micro-brewery? Set up an Apiary and make your own honey? The possibilities are endless.
The University of Leicester is offering a non-accredited online course in Education for Sustainable development. Watch our interesting and thought provoking videos to support this course.
Hungry for Change wants to reach out and work with community groups and organisations within our region to create a larger impact and benefit from learning from others.
We are offering week long volunteer classroom assistant placements through the University of Leicester’s Botanic Gardens. Volunteers will take part in an interview process, receive relevant training then assist qualified teachers in offering sessions in growing and sustainable development to primary school children visiting the gardens.
Places are limited to please check details….
