We are looking for sanctuary volunteers
The Black Sheep is looking for keen volunteers! We usually ask people to stay a minimum of a month, though longer stays are often available. We ask sanctuary workers to volunteer in our fundraising op-shops in Wellington and Ōtaki for 3 half days per week. This is fun and easy and an essential way for us to fundraise.
You will get a bedroom of your own in the communal house and be expected to join in with communal cooking. We have plenty of jackets, waterproof boots, warm clothes, etc so don't feel you have to purchase anything before arriving. If you hold a valid driver's license, we have a spare car available for adventuring.
The sanctuary is a human-vegan space - you will be expected to eat only vegan food during your stay. We welcome gay/lesbian/bi/trans/queer friendly people and are opposed to all kinds of oppression. The sanctuary aims to be a space safe from sexism, homophobia, racism etc, so please come along with a great attitude!
Please feel free to ask if you have questions! We look forward to hearing from you.
Please also indicate if you would like to receive our newsletter with sanctuary updates and invitations to working bees!
