Daily tasks: Our members work on the campus of African Pavilion every morning tending to the permaculture garden, doing forest work, and maintaining the interior areas and exterior grounds. Members have kitchen duties and often go shopping for groceries, tools and supplies. Once the integral work is completed, members also paint signs and decorate our spaces. We hold weekly meetings, keep minutes and write reports when called upon. Organisation of events and workshops is key as we have weekly activities and also rent our spaces for general use. Members should participate in events to ensure they run smoothly and sometimes we give public performances to exhibit African culture. All African Pavilion members should be welcoming to guests and able to supervise visitors' accommodations when needed. We love our dogs and they love us so members should feel comfortable engaging with our animals.
