Dear Member of London Heritage Farm Society,
The City of Richmond now has an on-line city-wide volunteer database that links all volunteers with all heritage sites and community centres. Since London Heritage Farm is part of this system, all members are urged to register themselves at https://icanhelp.richmond.ca/.
This software will help everybody: For volunteers, you set up your own profile, say where you’d like to volunteer, find out about volunteer opportunities city-wide, can apply for volunteers positions, email me (as the LHF volunteer coordinator) and record your volunteer hours. For LHF, it means that the farm and it’s volunteer opportunities are more widely advertized so our membership will grow and thrive, as well as keeping you more informed as to special events and areas that need your help.
Here’s some information to help you set up your profile:
- Go to https://icanhelp.richmond.ca/ and, in the left hand column, click on “Volunteer Registration”
- Read the first page that comes up (the Agreement) and then select and click on “I agree”. (This is important because otherwise you can go no further.) Then click on “OK” at the bottom of that page.
- Continue with “My Profile”. Please note that only the boxes marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
- When you get to the “Preferred Facilities, Locations and Programs” please make sure you click on London Heritage Farm! Your volunteer info will go to every facility/location that you choose on this page.
If you have any trouble setting up your profile, please feel free to contact me at the Administration office (604-271-5220). I’m in the office only on Weds and Thurs (8:30-4:00) in January but will be back to my regular office hours of Wed-Fri, 8:30-4:00 in Feb.
