We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Grow Heathrow is looking for new members!

Posted: December 4th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

For a two month trial period, Grow Heathrow is now open to applications from new volunteers of all genders.

We are an intentional community and activist base, and we invite volunteers to become immersed in our day to day life. There are a variety of activities and tasks we need help with, including construction projects, landscaping, gardening, cooking, making art, communications/media and fixing bikes. Experience is not necessary, we are simply looking for proactive, energetic and enthusiastic people who are ready to get involved in the project. Food is provided, as is accommodation in our mixed-gender guest cabin (a female-only guest space is planned). We expect volunteers to attend our two weekly work days (Thursday and Saturday) and our Wednesday meetings, as well as helping out with daily tasks such as washing up, cooking and sometimes hosting visitors.

At this point we are able to accept 4 new volunteers per month: after being here for a week as a guest, you can apply to be a volunteer for another 3 weeks, following which you will have the opportunity to apply to apply to be a long term volunteer for 3 months. This is so we can all get to know each other and make sure we’re going to get along in the long run! Since we all live together and share the space, it is important that we are welcoming people whose values align with the aims of the project. Have a look around this website for further information on why Grow Heathrow came to be and what we stand for. If you would like to become a volunteer at Grow Heathrow, please contact us first, via email (info@transitionheathrow.com) or through our Facebook page. We’d love to hear something about yourself and why you’re interested in volunteering with us. It’s chilly and gets dark early at this time of year, so you will need to come equipped with warm winter clothes, a sleeping bag and a torch! We’re looking forward to welcoming you into the Grow family!
