Volunteers or ‘active members’ contribute eight hours of their time per month. Many active members complete their hours through weekly shifts either in the shop, café or garden. However, we are aware of time constraints on people’s lives and so we allow flexibility in members completing their hours through garden working bees, shop inventory checks, event volunteering and many other ways.
Source runs events throughout the year to help bring people together and to strengthen the community feeling of the cooperative. During the summer, the pizza oven gets fired up, music and entertainment hit the stage and a bar serves drinks. Then, during the winter, events become more mellow and intimate. You can enjoy a warming bowl of soup or a deliciously spiced chai whilst watching an inspiring film, meeting new friends or having great discussion.
