Volunteer Needs: +++++ Beach Cleanups & ECO Art Treasure Sorting/Hunting - Each month, on the 3rd Saturday from 8:00 to noon, we are the Front Lines of Surfriders' Beach Cleanup at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. Surfrider volunteers clean the beaches then dump their finds in our tubs. Be Creative Zone volunteers sort them into Returnables, Recyclables and Trash/Treasures. Before items are deemed trash and head to their final destination (the landfill), volunteers get an opportunity to assess the viability of it remaining use. Can we clean and reuse for funky art? Can we get creative with it and upcycle it to something new? Participants are challenged to get their ""Creative ECO Art"" quick thinking caps on. As found items are sorted, we collaborate on Eco Art and other creative environmental stewardship ideas. At the end of the day, volunteers are outraged, moved to take action and inspired to be a part of the solution. +++++ Experiential Cleaning and Creative Conversations for ReUse - After each Beach Cleanup still useful found items need to be cleaned and sort for reuse. Witness firsthand the still usefulness of stuff once it gets cleaned. Reuse is an important part of a circular economy and personal environmental stewardship. Participants get to the experience the peace filled nature of cleaning still useful items, as well as get an opportunity to talk about what can be done with the found items. Creativity abounds. Date and time flexible. +++++ Grant Writing - With our assistance, research grant opportunities and write grant proposals for various ECO Creative programs. +++++ Website Design & Development - Work with us to revamp our website. From copy writing to design to application development, every aspect of a dynamic WORDPRESS website is needed. +++++ Create ECO Art and other ECO Stewardship Content - ReUse and Upcycle ideas. Come up with or find creative activities for the ""SAVED from the Landfill"" items we have in our storage. (Beach finds are only one source.) Document or create videos to teach people your ReUse idea or Funky Art activity for use on our website and social media. +++++ Business or Strategic Plan (501c3 nonprofit) - Help us create our 10-year Strategic Plan. +++++ We can accommodate 10 volunteers and can provide at least 15 hours of service to volunteers.

These volunteer days require volunteers to be able to lift up to 30 pounds and be on their feet for an hour at a time (breaks and snacks provided). Food Cycle is not the only composting event, we also host Worm Wranglin'. This is an opportunity to get involved in the vermicomposting process while you help our staff separate worms from their castings, sift castings, and build new worm beds. Finally, we need help at community outreach events, which typically require volunteers that have volunteered for at least two of the aforementioned volunteer opportunities. Volunteers will help educators run our composting booths to provide community resources, as well as accompany educators to schools where we teach kids about composting and zero waste practices. We do not require a background check but do require volunteers to complete an application and orientation. Volunteer events can accommodate groups of 5, while outreach events typically need 1 to 2 volunteers. We offer one time volunteer opportunities and recurring volunteer opportunities.
