how to employ
Could be casual, contracted (like the gardener that Andrew was getting in) or part time.
Casual is probably the best option but will see what the sustainability department say
three hours per week on average. Will be more during semester and less in holidays. encumbent to keep a record of time in lieu.
Also, should come to 75% of working bees (as a volunteer).
The role should be limited to 6 months to allow many people to have a chance at doing the role. However, people can re-apply after one ‘term’.
good to have a handover period of a month
how to select facilitator
whether we should advertise or keep it among the group. If we did advertise, those from within the group would be looked upon more favourably.
will advertise a little bit
if there are many applicants, will find a way to make a shortlist. Perhaps the people on the shortlist (or everyone interested?) can have a three minute presentation in a metting and then we go to anonymous vote.
roles of facilitator
- preparing materials for the bees
- communication (using the firstname.lastname@example.org address to maintain consistency)
- maintenance of garden when everyone is away
- delegating to make sure that fb events and posters are made and distributed
- meeting minutes
explained to leila what the coordinator role entailed:
a certain amount of commitment and helping with the fb page.
Leila to be a coordinator!
progress and feedback on role
the facilitator needs to be able to discuss with the coordinators how the role is going and if they are having any problems
facilitator to check in with the coordinators every second meeting.
who to do it first?
Pippa to be first facilitator
working bee captains
Pippa said that she feels the pressure to not pull out of working bees whereas other people can. discussed taking it in turns to be the person who HAS to come to the working bee
will allocate a co-ordinator captain for every working bee, they are expected to be there for the whole time and they get to wear the captain’s hat (a sombrero?)
