The People’s Garden supports the AUSU Food Pantry by providing fresh vegetables and herbs during the growing and harvest season on the Sault Ste. Marie campus. In addition to providing food to aid in food security projects, the Garden team hosts workshops, knowledge sharing sessions, and community engagement activities such as Harvest Dinners. The People’s Garden is currently looking for students to help maintain and develop the garden, ensuring that crops are watered, garden beds are weeded, and assisting in promoting the garden operations to the community. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the People’s Garden Coordinator, Henna, at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Food Pantry is run by a small team of staff, including a coordinator and support staff positions. Typically, the Food Pantry would be seeking volunteers to help with day to day operations, such as gathering and organizing donations, assisting students with appointments, and helping with food security projects. However, due to COVID, the Food Pantry is not currently accepting volunteers. As volunteer positions become available, information will be sent to your student email and posted on @ AUSU82 social media.
We here at AUSU have many opportunities to get involved from elected positions, volunteer positions, paid work and research placement opportunities!
