Committing to Sunseed 

Living at Sunseed as a community member means more than simply doing your job well. You will be expected to balance environment, community and personal needs.

You will also be expected to take part fully in community life, relevant meetings and to assist in duties that are outside of your post like sharing communal duties such as cooking and cleaning as well as setting a good example in areas such as enthusiasm, safe practices, punctuality and socialising.

All staff members participate in the planning and implementation of tasks in their department and contribute to the overall longer-term strategic development of the project.

All staff members are responsible for supervising volunteers and implementing the Health and Safety guidelines in all activities. This is of utmost importance for staff involved in supervising unskilled volunteers in potentially hazardous situations.

All staff members are expected to follow and oversee Sunseed’s mission and policies (vegetarian, no-chemical), procedures (grievance) and agreements (communal).
