Volunteering at the Sale

Volunteer at the Plant Sale and help the Arboretum fulfill its mission of getting great garden plants in home gardens. Volunteers are needed to help during the set-up week before the sale, break-down of the Plant Sale field after the sale, and during the sale itself. Volunteers can work on particular committees such as: woody plants, perennials, etc.
