About

Help get people out in their gardens - while encouraging sustainability and healthy lifestyles!

Spring Garden Market is an annual plant sale and educational fair that takes place at History San Jose (adjacent to Kelley Park). It's a fun event with many opportunities to learn and share.

We're looking for volunteers to work one of two shifts: 8:30a-11:30a or 11:30a-2:30p. These hours will count as volunteer service hours for students. The things you'll be doing:

- Maintain a "Plant Check" area, much like a coat check for the plants our customers have purchased

- Help patrons load their cars with plants / other items purchased

- Help setting up and taking down tables as the event progresses

This is a great activity for high school and college service clubs. Let us know if you're interested and we'll follow up with more information and details on meeting time & place.
