Interfaith Vegan Alliance need volunteers for the allotment to help cultivate the site and prepare the soil for growing food. This may involve general gardening tasks such as weeding, digging, hoeing, composting, grass cutting, pruning/weaving shrubs/trees, sowing and planting seeds. General hand tool maintenance, securing handles, sharpening tools etc. No previous experience is required, although anyone with forest gardening and/or permaculture design skills would be fantastic (1-16 hours per week).

Interfaith Vegan Alliance are trying to cultivate a growing community of sustainable thinkers in such a way as to counteract the food scarcity and inequality that presently exists in our communities. Hence support is warmly welcomed for our monthly vegan feast project. Project SOS Homelessness Leeds (The Great Vegan Feast) involves preparing and sharing food for people in poverty. Volunteers may help distribute food, clothes and other essential items to the homeless, refugees, asylum seekers. No previous experience is required although anyone with experience in giving support and advice to people with drugs and alcohol misuse problems, or anyone able to give benefits or immigration support and advice are very welcome. (2-6 hours on the third Thursday of each month at Mill Hill Chapel).
