Load/Unload Native Plants for Spring Plant Sale

Thursday April 4 From 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM (Stone Mountain)

We are looking for volunteers who enjoy being outdoors and getting a little dirty. Our spring plant sale is a wonderful way to meet experienced gardeners who understand and love native plants of Georgia. We need volunteers to help sort, pack and load plants at Stone Mountain, then travel to McFarlane Park in Marietta to help unload the plants at our sale site. It is a great opportunity to see plants not usually available at nurseries and learn ways that native plants attract wildlife, reduce the need to water and fertilize, and promote a balanced ecosystem.
