I have volunteered for NMF multiple times by helping with research and preparing handouts for presentations. I have found the work to be rewarding and fun. NMF offers a variety of opportunities to volunteer and all are equally rewarding.

Here are a few examples of how I have volunteered with NMF:

I volunteered a couple of hours to look for quotes and facts about sustainability. The facts and quotes were used in a presentation given by NMF at the Master Gardener’s Symposium on Sustainability. NMF was the key note speaker at the symposium.

I volunteered a couple of hours to look for facts supporting the need to get children outside in unstructured play. These were also used in the presentation given by NMF at the Master Gardener’s Symposium on Sustainability.

I volunteered after work to make flashcards with facts about composting. The flash cards were used at a booth at the NMF at the Master Gardener’s Symposium on Sustainability. NMF used the flashcards to engage children in sustainability activities and to encourage parents to teach their children how to be sustainable.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen how the kids get excited to learn about sustainability and realize for the first time at a NMF event that they enjoy being outdoors and participating in sustainability events.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Suggest holding more events where they can inform potential and current volunteers about the projects they are working and how they benefit the community. I believe NMF does a lot of good for the community but this is not always communicated with the volunteers.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I volunteered time to research facts and create handouts.
