Volunteer at the Plant Sale
**February 17, 2019**
Date of SCD Annual Plant Sale has been changed to accommodate the inclement weather. NEW DATE is February 17, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Address: Evergreen State Fairgrounds, Commercial Building #400 (main parking area)
What will volunteers be doing exactly? Volunteer tasks will include: counting plants in customer carts to assist an SCD cashier (you will not be collecting money or running the actual register), running a youth craft activity, running pre-orders in the back, greeting customers, and assisting with customer outreach at a booth.
We recommend wearing warm layers that you don't mind working in or getting a little dirty, and comfortable shoes. If you have your own gloves, please bring them. If not, no worries! We have plenty of extra gloves available to you.
There will be training on site, so no special experience is necessary. We will provide light refreshments and snacks.
Special Instructions when you arrive: Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your shift to allow time for checking-in and so you can enjoy refreshments. We will be starting promptly at the beginning of each shift with a whole group training and orientation. We appreciate your efforts to help our efficiency by arriving on time, so we can avoid repeating instructions. Also, we ask that you please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your shift. That way, our staff can have adequate time to set-up before each shift.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Sara Rocero, 425-377-7025 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Plant Sale Background: The Native Plant Sale is a one-day event that sells affordable, high-quality native plants to help promote their use on private lands. Each year hundreds of volunteer hours are clocked to help make this event one of the most successful native plant sales in our area.
Native plants benefit the environment because they are adapted to our climate and provide vital habitat to native animals, including endangered ones. They are adapted to many of the native soil types in our area and generally flourish with minimal inputs (such as fertilizer or constant watering), and they protect our landscape from invasive species. Each plant we sell is another opportunity to restore and protect precious soil and water resources to benefit salmon, pollinators, wildlife, and humans. And, our volunteers make it all possible!
