We will have our annual plant sale with the Master Gardeners and the Botanical Garden on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 9am until 2pm. At 8am on Friday, April 24, we will need volunteers to set up the tables and tents. Some volunteers are also needed on April 24 at 8am at Joan and Jim Etcherger’s yard to place the plants in the trucks so that all plants can be transported to the sale site. After the plants arrive at the site, volunteers will unload them and we will arrange them on the tables, sorting them by sun, part-sun, shade, butterflies, vines, shrubs, and trees. On Friday after the sale is set up we could use a couple of volunteers for one of the two night shifts to protect the plants from deer and other critters. It is not fair for Master Gardeners to do all the night watches. We will return on Saturday, April 25 for the sale. On Saturday, April 25 beginning at 8am, volunteers will help with the sale, which ends at 2pm. We will also need volunteers on Saturday, April 25 to clean up after the sale ends. We hope to have many of you participate and help in this major annual event. It is our major fundraiser; it allows us to offer nature camp scholarships and pays for the speakers 8 March–April 2015 who come from all areas of Virginia, as well as giving donations to native plant projects in Virginia. Please save some time for us either on Friday, April 24 or Saturday, April 25, we need you.
