Volunteer for Plant Sale!

Volunteers at the 2015 Native Plant Sale pickup day tent

Come join the fun… Volunteering for plant sale is a great way to connect with other great people who have a love for plants and nature. We need help with pre-event order sorting and also on plant pick-up day. Snacks will be provided and good times will be had. You’ll get just a little bit dirty and you’ll have a lot of fun! No native plant expertise necessary.

Dates & Details:
Pre-Event: February 12-15
Help us prepare orders by selecting and packaging bare-root trees and shrubs into individual bags. Morning and afternoon shifts are approximately 3.5 hours.

Note: All volunteer shifts for Pick-up Day have already been filled. Thank you!

Volunteer Working Conditions:
All volunteer shifts take place outside, under a large (semi-heated) event tent. Temperatures will vary, and volunteers may experience some exposure to the weather. Work will be physically moderate, as it typically involves standing, walking, bending, twisting, and tying knots. Gloves, safety glasses and snacks will be provided.

To sign up for a shift, simply fill out the form below. One registration per person please.  If you want to volunteer with a friend or partner, please note their name in the comment box below. We will be in touch soon with additional information. Thank you!
