I, the undersigned volunteer, on behalf of myself and my heirs, hereby agree to indemnify, save, and hold harmless Fresh Approach, their Board of Directors, and any of their agents, representatives, employees, and assigns, and other volunteers for my health, safety, and any injury and/or disability arising out of or resulting from the volunteer activity in which I am participating.
Physical activities in which I may be asked to participate to complete my volunteer service include, but may not be limited to, walking on uneven and inclined outdoor surfaces, lifting up to 25 pounds, standing for up to two and one half hours without a break, and working in adverse weather conditions including warm summer conditions (high temperatures and humidity) or cool winter weather (wind and rain). I have prepared myself for the volunteer activity in which I am participating by adequately conditioning myself. I understand that it is my responsibility to avoid an assignment if I feel I would be at risk. Further, it is my responsibility to inform Fresh Approach if I feel I cannot complete my volunteer duty due to a health or safety issue, while engaging in my volunteer assignment.
If volunteering in the Collective Roots Community Garden, I acknowledge that gardening is inherently
dangerous and may involve, among other things, a good deal of physical exertion, exposure to and use of
dangerous tools, and exposure to biting and stinging insects, including bees.
I hereby represent that I have no physical restrictions that would prohibit my participation in the volunteer activity in which I am about to participate. I understand that Fresh Approach does not provide liability insurance or workers compensation insurance for me while I am participating as a volunteer. I acknowledge I have adequate medical and hospital insurance for any injuries that I may incur as a result of my participation as a volunteer.
I hereby acknowledge that this agreement does not represent a contract for employment with Fresh Approach and that no other agreement, either written or verbal, exists which creates an employment relationship between myself and Fresh Approach.
