Seeking volunteers for our EARTH DAY Picnic in the Park!

Envirohub Marlborough

Each year, Envirohub Marlborough celebrates International Earth Day with a zero waste picnic at Pollard Park. This event is zero waste and fun and free for the whole family, with music, talks, workshops, stalls, food, an eco-friendly market and so much more!

We run this event annually with the support and presence of other environmental groups around Marlborough, and we need your help to make it happen!

Date: Sunday, 21st April 2024
Times: 10:00am – 3:00pm
Location: Pollard Park, Blenheim

Areas we require help are listed below.

Zero Waste Dishwashing Trailer:
Single-use products are a huge issue as the amount of rubbish headed to landfill each year is staggering. The Envirohub Marlborough Zero Waste Dishwashing trailer was constructed recently to help divert rubbish and replace it with reusable plates, cups, crockery, cutler and the like. We need your help churning through those dishes, so we can provide food vendors with a reusable option throughout the duration of the event. This is the MOST rewarding dishes you'll ever wash!

Envirohub Marlborough market stall:
Envirohub Marlborough sells earth-friendly products as a part of our social enterprise and fundraising efforts. We will be running a stall to help raise more funds and we need your help running the stall.

Conservation Kids NZ & Envirohub Marlborough Tents:
We will need some help running the Kids and Envirohub Marlborough Tents during the event. This will include helping to run activities, chatting to the public and so on.

Set up & pack down:
We need extra hands to help us out with setting up the marquees/tents and helping out our stallholders, and for packing everything down at the end of the day. Not too much time required, and you can enjoy the event before or afterward!


Can stay on their feet for the duration of the volunteering, can work well with others, a fun and can-do attitude!

Time commitment:

Usually we request a commitment of 2 hours at a time, however, any time you can offer us will be greatly appreciated!
