Saturday Oct 14 North Star House
12075 Auburn Road, Grass Valley
10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. general public
(9:30-10:30 a.m. Member Appreciation Sale --
Come early and become a Redbud member!)
Each year, dozens of Redbud members and volunteers go all out to bring you a great native plant sale!
Over 2,000 plant species are native to Placer and Nevada Counties, a natural heritage bringing beauty, color, fragrance, shade, and wildlife to our communities and our homes.
native plants are well adapted to long, dry summers and many go dormant
blooming in Spring. When the rains return, plants reawaken,
makes Fall the perfect time for planting! At
the Redbud Native Plant Sale, we hope you’ll
find just what you are looking for.
The Redbud Native Plant sale is only possible with the help of many dedicated volunteers whose efforts are organized and coordinated by the Plant Sale chair in conjunction with the chairs of the Plant Sale committees (e.g., publicity, plants, set-up/take-down, exhibitors, food, finance).
Have fun, meet great folks, and help with Redbud’s 2017 Native Plant Sale. You don’t have to be a member or have special knowledge to be a volunteer. To show our appreciation, volunteers receive a free one gallon plant.
Plant Sale Chair: Are you organized? Do you like planning and working with others to accomplish great things? Redbud needs a Plant Sale Chair who can help experienced and new committee chairs and volunteers put on a successful Fall sale. The Plant Sale Chair works with the committee with committee chairs and volunteers to: acquire plants; recruit and organize volunteers; arrange for vendors and exhibitors; publicize the sale; and set up, hold, and take down the sale. The Plant Sale Chair serves as a voting member of the Redbud Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving as the Plant Sale Chair, or as a Committee Chair, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteers are needed for all kinds of jobs, from distributing flyers, to putting up signs and banners, to arranging the plant displays, to cashiering and tallying, to setting up (and taking down) the tents and tables, to monitoring parking, to staffing information and expert advice tables, to committee chairs, and more. If you are interested in volunteering, please email email@example.com.
At the sale, we’ll have expert native-plant gardeners available throughout the sale. Get information on choosing plants for specific needs/locations, as well as on pollinator-friendly, drought-tolerant, fire-resistant, and lawn-alternative plants. Choose from a wide selection of healthy, beautiful plants from specialty and wholesale nurseries, grown with special care.
It’s not too early to start researching, planning, and identifying plants you would like to add to your garden. See calscape.cnps.org to find out, for example, what plants are native to your area, what their needs are (sun/shade, water requirements, elevation), how fast they grow, and what are their plant communities. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
