Volunteers make the difference! You can help make the Spring Master Gardener Plant Sale & Garden Market on May 5 and 6 a huge success. Bring your gardening know-how! Sign up now for a shift.
The 19th Annual
Master Gardener Plant Sale
Saturday, MARCH 18th, there will be 4 two-hour shifts at the CUH Greenhouse, 8am-10am, 10am-Noon, Noon-2pm, and 2pm to 4pm to enjoy the time spent with other Master Gardeners doing what we love! When you register to help you can choose the task that best suits you, just put a ‘1’ in the open slot to save your spot.
What you might help with:
- Dividing and potting up plants
- Identifying and researching plants
- Moving cart loads of plants in and out of the potting area, etc.
We are offering CEs:
We are formalizing the education part, and you may earn an hour of CE by attending the session that will be held during the shifts, time TBD. Come early to work and then stay for this information session. Or attend the session and stay to put your knowledge to practice. Either way you are helping to generate pure profit for the Plant Sale and the Foundation.
What to bring to be prepared:
- Gloves, pruners and/or knives,
- A plant guide or other resource to help with identification, and
- Clumps of plants to donate if you have them or dig them from willing friends, neighbors, and family gardens. See Sam Mithchell’s article in the February issue of The Connection, Master Gardener Plant Sale and Garden Market:Getting Ready! for lots of information about how to select your plants to share.
- If you have 1-gallon or larger pots, please bring those to use for the donated plants. See the registration for other items needed.
You might also bring a snack to share and something more substantial for lunch. This year we will not have access to the kitchen facilities as in the past.
The Master Gardener Foundation supplies the soil, pots, flats, and education. We all supply the fun! All Master Gardeners are needed and wanted. Interested in doing more for the Plant Sale.
