Some last notes:
Note: I have volunteer for many years in Canada and abroad. I currently volunteer for the ESS (Emergency Social Services) team at City of Surrey; the Food Action Coalition of Surrey/White Rock and a Disaster Management/Emergency Preparedness and First Aid facilitator/trainer for DM at the Canadian Red Cross. I am also part of various local boards such as the Surrey Board of Trades and the local Transition group (Village Surrey). I offer Emergency Preparedness and Introduction to permaculture/Gardening and Food Preservation workshops to community groups.
Volunteering is part of my life and who I am and has allowed me to meet amazing people, be trained at incredible levels and skills and participate in awesome projects in the community.
