Volunteer with Sustainable Tallahassee
Volunteers are key to growing not only our organization but also to market, promote, educate, and collaborate on programs and projects to transform Tallahassee into a model community in sustainability. To volunteer or to learn more about volunteering opportunities with Sustainable Tallahassee, please contact us at Volunteer@SustainableTallahassee.org. In the meantime, we need your help at several key upcoming events - we hope you'll volunteer!
April 15th and 16th-The LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival of 2017: Sustainable Tallahassee will be partnering with LeMoyne to "green" the entire event. With such a huge art festival, which saw approximately 75,000 attendees last year (check out last year's event HERE), we need a lot of help with our recycle stations, information tables, compost educators, and more.
In addition to our monthly Green Drinks program and gathering, we also coordinate several special events such as an annual meeting, awards program and member events or field trips. Our annual fundraiser is a 5K Trash Dash held in the Fall each year. If you like to participate in organizing events, this opportunity is made just for you. Get in touch with us at Volunteer@SustainableTallahassee.org.
We have several active committees where we can put your talents and time to good use to make Sustainable Tallahassee strong and effective in our community. Our committees are involved with energy, transportation, green business, waste reduction, resource protection, local foods, membership development, fundraising - and more. Check out our full list of committees to see what appeals to you and how you can make a difference.
The Sharing Tree
The Sharing Tree is Tallahassee’s first reusable resource center for Leon County Public School teachers! With cooperating efforts from Sustainable Tallahassee, Leon County, Goodwill, and Leon County Schools, the goal is to offer classroom materials completely free of charge to teachers in Leon County Public Schools. The Sharing Tree is also open to the public, and there are frequent workshops where we can learn creative ways to re-use materials. The Sharing Tree began as an initiative of Sustainable Tallahassee's Recycling Committee in 2010, and we're still proud of our partnership. Find out more at www.TheSharingTreeFL.org.
