The Dish Project Concordia

The Dish Project is looking for volunteers for the upcoming semester! Our work focuses on reducing waste in and around Concordia University by providing support and reusable dishes as a free and accessible alternative to disposable items at events, meetings, and other gatherings. We also focus on exploring, understanding, and educating our community with regard to waste justice issues and waste reduction. Volunteers play a key role in the smooth, day-to-day operations of the Dish Project, as the project is largely volunteer run. Volunteers prepare dish orders, organize the dish room, and handle the pick-ups and drop-offs of orders. In addition, they take part in other aspects of the project including outreach, event planning, and finances. For more information or to get involved, email us at volunteer@dishproject.ca

Volunteer with Urban Seedling

We are looking for passionate gardeners to come and get your hands dirty in the greenhouse and our demonstration gardens.

If you want to swing by for an hour and see what needs to be done that day or drop by over your lunch break and weed the garden, no problem! Give us a call and swing by whenever you get the chance.
If you have more time to spare we have started the “Urban Seedling Dollar” exchange. It requires a 3 hour minimum per session, but you can stay as long as you’d like. These hours will give you “Urban Seedling Dollars” that you can spend in our garden centre and greenhouse.

The greenhouse work starts in April and involves help with transplanting, fertilizing and pest management as well as general help around our gardens, greenhouse and garden centre.

If you are interested in helping out please contact Urban Seedling at the address below. Include your name, phone number, experience and what level of volunteering you are interested in as well as an idea of what dates you are available for. We will call you for a short phone interview to make sure your skills are put to the best use.
