* * * We have an immediate need for the role of SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERT to be filled for 2018.

This VOLUNTEER would assist PPS by posting on Twitter and Instagram to help promote our yearly plant sale as well as the monthly presentors at our Society meetings. Our Plant Sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 7, 2018 Plant Sale.

Additionally, we are looking for a PHOTOGRAPHER who will use their digital camera to capture images at these events (not their cell phone). While we are aware that some phones have excellent cameras attached, we are looking for a photographer who has a Canon or Nikon or Olympus and who would be able to load the images to a flash drive for PPS to use to promote their plant sale in the future.

Please contact us if you have these skills. Our email address is: perennial.plant.society@gmail.com
Photographers - please provide a website link to images of your work. Many thanks! * * *

Additionally - Event volunteers are always needed at these yearly events prior to June each year:

March - Lawn and Garden Show (Booth Only)
April - Plant Sale
May - Urban Garden Show (Booth Only)

Volunteers are needed to promote PPS at our March and May event booths for the Lawn and Garden Show and the Urban Garden show.
The April Plant Sale needs Saturday volunteers to price and place plants on display, to act as cashiers and plant guides and to partake in the clean-up after the event.

Lastly - we are also interested in having these additional roles filled during the year:

Photographer - Take photos with a digital camera and/or with a cell phone at our events including Society meetings, garden tours, picnics and parties. Upload images to a thumb drive or e-mail the electronic photos to the PPS President for posting to the website and PPS Facebook page

It takes many helping hands to make our group a success.
We look forward to welcoming you to our festivities throughout 2017. Adults of all ages welcome! :)
