optimized-1024px

Applications to volunteer for the 2022/23 Woodford Folk Festival are now open and we are thrilled to be inviting our returning volunteers to join us again in co-creating a beautiful festival. We are equally excited to welcome new volunteers to join the crew.

Returning volunteers were emailed an invitation to volunteer with their codes on 15 September – please check your junk mail if it isn’t in your inbox. It helps us stay in touch with you if you can find that email and click on those magic buttons that take you to the application site.

If you are a Returning Volunteer and did not receive the invite to volunteer, please email volunteers@woodfordfolkfestival.com to have your codes sent to you.

If you are a new volunteer click on the button below.

We look forward to working with you to make this festival a magical experience for all.

WINTER WARMER VOLUNTEERING – 30 & 31 JULY

Our annual working bee is an enormous help to our small site team to help us with those jobs that are simply better done by many hands, at least it’s more fun that way. There are projects around the site from landscaping to sorting through our storage containers, as well as artistic projects and projects for the whole family. Click on the button below to sign up for a project.

If you are a returning volunteer and didn’t receive your codes to apply easily, please write to volunteers@woodfordia.com to have them sent to you.

LAKE LOVERS WANTED*

Do you like lake? We lake it a lot, our gorgeous Lake Gkula. It’s growing up and developing beautifully but needs regular care and maintenance to keep it flourishing. We have a small but growing crew of dedicated volunteers who come out and do weeding around the edges, pruning and plant care, some skimming of algae and a bunch of tasks that will help the plants grow, the fish flourish and all the creatures that have come to live in the lake thrive.

You can come out for a day / week, a day / month, less or more, it’s up to you. We just ask you to complete this short little form and our head of the Lake Lovers crew will get in touch with you to go through the how you can become part of this very important crew. You will also be able to come camp on site the night before or night after you volunteer and of course, go for a dip after the work is done.

* Woodfordia Inc is a registered organisation with Centrelink. Any voluntary work may count towards your Mutual Obligation Requirements.
