Description: Part one: Tallong Apple Festival (7 days) Host organisation: Tallong Community Focus Group organises the annual Tallong Apple Day Festival as well as other community engagement activities such as maintaining community parks and gardens. The Apple Festival commemorates the history of the area as well as providing an opportunity for the community to gather for a day of fun. Funds raised go back to community projects.
Part 2. Richlands Open Day (7 days) Host Organisation: Richlands Historic House and Stephen Horn. Richlands is an historic homestead in a farming and grazing district, currently in private hands. For the October 2024 Open Day the house will have displays, tours/ talks illustrating early life and links to district history.

Type of Work: Tallong Apple Festival Preparation and set up of festival, Event management, Pack-up. Volunteers must be prepared to do physical work, some medium-heavy lifting. You will work alongside local community volunteers, with a supervisor and a volunteer manager. Richlands Open Day Volunteers will help prepare the house for visitors, arrange displays and signage, and act as stewards on the day. The work is both indoors - cleaning and polishing, displays; and outdoors - path trimming, weeding and signs. They will in turn be introduced to district history and heritage both natural, economic and cultural. They will also get a feel for country life - the property still grazes cattle and sheep; it runs into natural grassy woodlands that support a variety of wildlife.

Study Theme: Overseas volunteers will be introduced to the tension between human occupation and biodiversity conservation in Australia - this will be part of the workcamp study theme.

Accommodation: Tallong Apple Festival Comfortable cabins or similar indoors. Volunteers will prepare meals together most days. Richlands Open Day Basic accommodation, most likely camping in tents provided. No internet. Volunteers will prepare meals together in the homestead.

Requirements: No specific requirements.

Organization Description: International Volunteers for Peace (IVP) is the Australian branch for Service Civil International (SCI), one of the world’s largest Global Volunteering Networks with Branches in 44 countries and 106 Partners and Contacts in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. More than 5000 volunteers participate in hundreds of volunteer projects each year. IVP involved Projects are initiated and organised by community groups, and are designed to be of tangible benefit to the local community. They enhance local initiatives and do not replace paid labour. Our projects historically have been described as ‘work camps’. Using this model, we bring together people of diverse race, ideology, nationality and age who live together while working on a community project. We offer short-term, and medium to long-term projects.
