We are so grateful for our volunteers! Below is a description of each of our available volunteer opportunities, with contact information. Our list of events where volunteers are needed is also available on Volunteer Match.

Recycling/Compost Volunteers

Sustainable Sandhills strives to make our events as eco-friendly as possible, and volunteers help make this happen! We are seeking 1-3 volunteers to serve as “waste station staffers” at Sustainable Sandhills events, to help ensure that attendees recycle and compost waste correctly. Please contact Trinity Vetere at trinity@sustainablesandhills.org.

Community Cleanup Volunteers

One of our greatest need for volunteers is at our monthly litter cleanups in Cumberland County and Moore County. In 2021, roughly 900 volunteers in Cumberland County picked up about 8 tons of trash, and the litter index in the City of Fayetteville decreased from 2.7 to 2.2. To find out more about how you can make an impact by volunteering at upcoming cleanups, click here.

Carbon Bank Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help count and map our carbon bank and do a random survey, in order to calculate the amount of carbon sequestered. To inquire about this activity, please email Gloria Lengel at glorial@sustainablesandhills.org.
