Hosts & volunteers

A green open homes event depends on the participation of a number of engaging householders willing to open their homes to the public. It also depends on a measure of volunteers support – there's a lot of work to be done.

Two of the downloads below will help you through the process of recruiting householders ('hosts') and volunteers. The others are guides for the hosts and volunteers themselves, explaining what they can expect from a green open homes event.
