The Forest Garden is being developed on the site of the Rahma Clinic, a new free health clinic resource at 3100 South Salina St. in Syracuse, NY.  Complimenting the mission of the clinic, we are creating a healthy snacking garden using forest gardening principles.  717 Otisco St will the new home of the Alchemical Nursery’s office as well as a collective urban homestead using Permaculture principles.

Alchemical produces a number of print brochures and flyers, as well as an online website and publications such as our Annual Report and educational/informational zines.  We are always in need of fresh and original artistic content and materials to help with promotions, marketing, and getting the gang excited about what we are doing.  Can you contribute some creative juices and flow to our scene?  All volunteer creative works will be licensed under the Creative Commons and be attributed to you in all uses.

Create a slideshow presentation and table display

Got PowerPoint skills and/or display design skills?  We need assistance and time to help us develop a slideshow presentation that will wow them (who’s ‘them’ you ask?  ‘Them’ is ‘they’ that need to hear our message!  ‘Them’ is not the choir); as well as a portable display design for tabling at events, shows, and festivals.  Help us design the concepts, the materials, the art, and the demonstrations.

Events: Practicing synergy workshops, progressive film screening & discussion, clothing swap, Annual meeting potluck and ceremony

Our offerings to the community have matured over time, and we have regular annual events that need assistance.  The Practicing Synergy Workshop Series takes place every Spring through Fall and includes a variety of topics related to our mission.  The clothing swap is a blast and happens each September during the Westcott Cultural Fair.  The progressive film screening and discussion happens during the Westcott Bulb Project weekend in October and features a different topic and guests each year.

Map Permaculture, Intentional Community, and Progressive Place Projects

One goal of the Alchemical Nursery is to develop and strengthen the Permaculture, Intentional Community and Ecovillage movement in Syracuse and Upstate CNY.  To do this we need to develop a database and map of currently undergoing sites and activities across the region.  Do you have mapping skills, or just like maps in general?  Let’s visually show what a complex and integrated network we are developing here in Syracuse, and bring geographically dispersed individuals, families, projects, and intentional communities together in the process as part of our DUCk (Decentralized Urban Community) initiative.

Website Editor/Article Authoring

The Alchemical Nursery website is only as valuable as the content it contains.  Write newsflashes and feature articles under your by-line increasing your published name recognition.  Become a moderator and help grow our blogging community and progressive social profile network of over 220 individuals registered on our site.

Drafting an Organizational Handbook

Every good organization that gets things done has some sort of internal structure that helps facilitate the good work.  Alchemical is in need of a Handbook to orient new interns and volunteers, and provide them with the information they need to succeed on a day-to-day basis.  Like to write, want to learn more about Alchemical in the process?  Join us in creating this document that will be very important to our future.
